Some Findings on Turkish Women and
Women’s Rights in Turkey
Ümit Sayin and Asiye Kocatürk
A short overview and summary of sexual behavior of Turkish women in Turkey is briefly given with some survey statistics, which were realized in 1993, 2003, and 2013. Also a short view of women rights problems is summarized. In Turkey, which is a secular and democratic republic, the social classes and sexual behavior of women differ so much. It is difficult to make a survey in homogenous groups. The preliminary results presented in this short report are from a target group of middle class, educated, secular and liberated women.
