Years ago, when I used to live in Istanbul, an American scholar said, “it’s understandable for you to be a feminist, you live in Turkey.” She said so assuming she didn’t have to be a feminist since she lived in the US. But we need #feminism everywhere. We need #globalsisterhood.
Wonderful and worthy winner, my heartfelt congratulations to the brilliant Susanna Clarke 🍀�@WomensPrizez#ReadMoreWomene#WomensPrizeztwitter.com/womensprize/st…FF

Let’s find a new way of talking about roots. You can love your country and at the same time, be a citizen of the world. Why do we have to think of our roots as something static, buried in one place only? Full video on my @YouTube channel dedicated to words m.youtube.com/watch?v=qWRJt4…
Enough is enough. How many women have been shamed, stigmatised, and even killed because of your patriarchal codes? When will men stop assuming that women’s bodies are their property? twitter.com/nazlaner/statu…
