    Abstract [en]

    This paper draws in part from data of a larger study on marital lives and divorce of women of various ages and backgrounds residing in metropolitan Turkey. The aim of the overall study has been to understand various factors which have paved the ways leading to divorce and the research method used for the study is based on narrative analysis. An important finding of the study is the control of women*s sexuality which is discussed in this paper with the help of the narratives of three women who are raised by dominant fathers and by subordinated mothers. I argue that gender and generation hierarchies are hidden in the idealized image of family life in low-to-middle-income families residing in suburban Turkey. Intergenerational conflicts arise due to three women's oppression in their young ages by their fathers who have decided upon their marriages to control their sexuality. Yet, as young adults, the three women try to find ways to cope with the control of their sexuality. The analysis of the three women's narratives reveal their endeavors either to challenge the idealized "virgin bride" norm or to get rid of their unwanted marriages through divorce or seperation which can be considered as instances of women's resistance to patriarchal domination and their search for individuation. How much resistance the three women are able to endeavor is dependent on the aspects of gendered interactions and on the embeddedness of ambivalences in gender role models in the patriarchal gender regime of Turkish society.

    The Honour/Shame Complex Revisited: Violence against Women in the Migration Context2003In: Women's Studies: International Forum, ISSN 0277-5395, E-ISSN 1879-243X, Vol. 26, no 5, p. 425-442Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article is based on the life histories of two immigrant women of Turkish origin living in Sweden. Fictive names are used in the article. The women are given in marriage at a very young age to attach them to men who will take over the function of their control from their fathers. By analyzing the life histories with the help of Delaney and Bourdieu's theoretical approaches, I try to explain the implicit idea in the honour/shame complex whereby protection of women is maintained through control on their sexuality. The control is accelerated to the extent that women live in “immigrant enclaves”. The function of women as carriers and bearers of group identity gains importance in case of the “immigrant situation” where ethnic identity becomes an issue to consider. Women are abused when they violate the boundaries of the definition of acceptable femininity by their ethnic community.

    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.

    Unregistered Women Workers in the Globalized Economy: A Qualitative Study in Turkey2010In: Feminist Formations, ISSN 2151-7363, E-ISSN 2151-7371, Vol. 22, no 3, p. 96-123Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In recent years, economic stagnation and the global economic crisis have subjected Turkish women workers to conditions that are more difficult than ever. The existent lack of proper controls and regulations has become even more pervasive during this period. Effective de-unionization is another reason sustaining these negative circumstances under which women workers are denied their legal rights. In this article, preliminary findings of field research undertaken in five relatively industrialized provinces in northwestern Turkey are presented. These findings reveal a variety of problems that unregistered women workers face: Child labor; high rates of worker turnover; wages that are below the official minimum and that are paid irregularly; harsh and unhealthy working conditions, including extended work time and unpaid, compulsory night shifts; and ill treatment and sexual harrassment by employers and foremen. The work histories of the 213 participants of the study, most of whom had started working at ages 12-15, indicate that a slave-like system has been operating for a relatively long time. Saying that this hidden labor is merely a case of women workers not being registered greatly oversimplifies a complicated structure that is in place and fails to represent its reality.
