Turkish Divorcées and Need for Woman-friendly Policies
Linnaeus University, Faculty of Social Sciences, Department of Social Studies. (Gender Studies)
2018 (English)In: Global Currents in Gender and Feminisms: Canadian and International Perspectives / [ed] Glenda Tibe Bonifacio, United Kingdom: Emerald Group Publishing Limited, 2018, 1st, p. 93-105Chapter in book (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

Gender analysis of the narratives of low-income divorcées in big cities of Ankara, Istanbul and Izmir shows that their lives are under patriarchal domination. Women are subjected to all kinds of violence in their marriage and escape it by getting a divorce. Their lives are vulnerable as the increasing numbers of lone mothers are neither morally nor socially accepted in Turkish society. The patriarchal family ideal exacerbates the situation of lone mothers who become stigmatized as divorcées. Divorce is considered a 'shame' for women, and the ideology of family is used as a poitical tool where persistent conservative bias ignores wife battering, rape and other types of abuse in society.
