One Small Step For Turkish Women Rights

It is not an earth shaking event in the history of female rights in Turkey, but it is a symbolic one. Up to this point, women in Turkey either had to use the surname of their husband or they could use their own maiden name in conjunction with his name. A Turkish court ruled from now on Turkish women could only use their maiden name without worrying about the surname of their husband. As we say, a minor victory, but each small step leads to a world in which women of Turkey have equal rights with men.

It is coming, it is coming.
