Campaign to Support Women’s Bodily Rights – Turkey

Much of the efforts to overturn protections for women is happening in the name of religion & culture and being spearheaded by Turkey’s ruling AKP Islamist political party, headed by President Erdogan.
Turkey pulled out of the Istanbul Convention, which protected women from violence, at a time when the country has one of the highest rates of violence against women & an alarming rate of femicide.
We call on the Turkish government to carry out its duty to protect all citizens, including women, from violence and end its policies designed to control women’s bodies.
