Turkey: Women confronting family violence
This report features cases of individual women who have suffered violence at the hands of their family. It outlines a pattern of abuse and discrimination which can start from birth when families barter their newborn daughters and force young girls into early marriage. The report reveals a culture of violence that can place women in double jeopardy, both as victims of violence and because they are denied effective access to justice.
