We are discussing Turkey’s withdrawal from the Istanbul Convention with experts and human rights activists from Human Rights Association (IHD, Turkey), European Women’s Lobby, Swedish Women’s Lobby, and People’s Democratic Party (HDP, Turkey).
In Turkey, inefficient state protection for women and poor legal response to perpetrators makes it harder every day to keep women’s liberties intact and lives secure.
We aim to open a feminist discussion on the impacts of withdrawal from the Convention and provide continuous support and voice adding to women’s organizations’ protests in Turkey.
