Altruistic Turkish Heroine: Serife Baci

During the War of Independence it was the women of
Kastamonu who held the first women's rally on 16 May
1919, declaiming that their country should be sold to
no one. That is why there is the statue of a local
heroine, Serife Baci, in front of the City Hall, a
building which is one of the masterpieces by the
architect Vedat Tek. This is the loveliest
public statue anywhere in Turkey. Legend has it that
Kastamonu was named after Moni, the daughter of a
Byzantine general, and ever since women have figured
large in its history, such as the courageous Halime
Cavus. During the War of Independence arms and
munitions were shipped to the port of Inebolu and
carried inland to the nationalist forces via Cankiri
and Ankara along what became known as the Independence
Road. So although the city's architectural garb is
Ottoman in character, it views the world with eyes that
belong to the Republic
