Rethinking Islam and liberal democracy : Islamist women in Turkish politics by Yeşim Arat( )

16 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 1,929 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Turkey, no secular party has approximated the high levels of membership and intense activism of women within the Islamist Refah (welfare) Party. Rethinking Islam and Liberal Democracy examines the experiences of these women, who represented an unprecedented phenomenon within Turkish politics. Using in-depth interviews, Yesim Arat reveals how the women of the party broadened the parameters of democratic participation and challenged preconceived notions of what Islam can entail in a secular democratic polity. The women of the party successfully mobilized large groups of allegedly apolitical women by crossing the boundaries between the social and the political, reaching them through personal networks cultivated in private spaces. The experiences of these women show the contentious relationship between liberal democracy and Islam, where liberalism that prioritizes the individual can transform, coexist, or remain in tension with Islam that prioritizes a communal identity legitimized by a sacred God."--Jacket

Violence against women in Turkey : a nationwide survey by Ayşe Gül Altınay( Book )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To trace women's experience of and the feminist struggle against domestic violence by male spouses (the major form of gender-based violence addressed by second-wave feminism in Turkey) from the late 1980s till today, we conducted an 18-month research project titled "Domestic Violence and the Struggle against It," supported by TÜBİTAK (The Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey). The project had two legs. First, based on in-depth interviews and focus group discussions, our research aimed at analyzing the mechanisms of empowerment, support, and awareness-raising developed by women's organizations at both the national and the local level, and to discuss the factors that contribute to the success, as well as the challenges and limitations of this organizing. Between February 2006 and June 2007, we interviewed more than 150 feminist activists from close to 50 organizations in 27 cities. Second, we conducted a nationwide representative survey in spring 2007. Based on face-to-face interviews with 1,800 ever-married women from a total of 56 provinces, this survey was the second nationwide study on domestic violence (first being a 1993 survey). The questionnaire for the survey was developed after a year of in-depth interviews with activists in women's or-activists specializing in this field. Besides this participatory process of survey preparation, an indispensable component of the feminist methodology we tried to adopt was approaching the women to be interviewed for the survey as "subjects" in the debate on domestic violence. This required a move away from a focus on women's "experience" of violence towards a questionnaire design that would help bring out their views on the background, legitimacy, prevention, and penalization of spousal violence. As we discuss in greater detail in the coming pages, the survey ended up having three parts: 1) what women think about domestic violence by their spouses (background and legitimacy), 2) women's experience of domestic violence by their spouse, and 3) women's views on prevention and penalization (with a particular emphasis on the role of the state)

Feminists in contemporary Turkey: treacherous daughters of Ataturk? by Yeşim Arat( Recording )

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Arat discusses the rise, in the 1980's of feminism in Turkey. She argues that the reforms of the '20s and '30s created conditions under which feminism could later emerge, traces its rise and ends by speculating that feminists of the '80s may have forwarded the spread of liberalism and democracy more than they forwarded their own agenda

"KAMER, a women's center and an experiment in cultivating cosmopolitan norms"( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Synopsis: 1 In this article, we shall focus on KAMER-Women's Center, the largest women's NGO organized in Eastern and South Eastern Turkey to see how it negotiates and nurtures cosmopolitan norms among women of conflicting persuasions. KAMER is a striking case because it has been successful in bringing together women with deep hostilities and uniting them over human rights based feminist values in a struggle against gender based violence. KAMER thus cultivates cosmopolitan norms through its unique struggle against gender based violence. Its non-violent activism is particularly noteworthy because the organization reaches women in the context of militarized ethnic nationalisms, both Turkish and Kurdish, in Kurdish populated Southeastern Turkey
