Since this forum topic got way off-topic, I was thinking to bring it back, before we definitely mix women rights with sarcastic comments on a pic, then on  those, who comment and so on... etc... etc... which is in a way related to the topic, on the other hand is pure defulation.

 

 

A picture I personally like, and a woman who must have had an interesting lifecourse and activity:

Duygu Asena

 

If anyone can provide more infos on Asena, or on her books - maybe even an e-book translation in English I surely would be thankful.

 

 

 

 

 

 

´The woman has no name´

Duygu Asena

"Escape the vicious circle. Fight for your equal rights, and get a job as a first step to make equal rights and freedom possible… We´ve come a long way but there´s still a long way to go." (Asena, 1994)

Duygu Asena (1946-2006) was born in Istanbul as the grandchild of Ataturk´s aide and CHP parliamentarian Ali Sevket Ondersev. She finished her studies in pedagogy at Istanbul University and became one of Turkey´s best known writers on women´s issues. In 1978, she became editor-in-chief of a publishing house. In this position she was responsible for the creation of several women´s magazines such as Kadinca.

In the 1980s Kadinca grew into a popular symbol of new attitudes to life. Asena saw it as a publication calling "on women to be daring and aggressively energetic, exhorting them to discover themselves, especially their feelings, capabilities and sexuality." It stressed women´s economic independence. It drew attention to feminist issues with headlines such as "Equal Rights in Marriage", "Women must become District Governors" or "A Ministry of Women´s Affairs must be established."

Asena´s first novel Kadinin Adi Yok ("Woman Has No Name"), published in 1987, was described by Sirin Tekeli as a "feminist manifesto". It is the story of a woman who fights to share the freedoms enjoyed by men in Turkish society as well as a bleak portrayal of marriage without love. It became a bestseller, but it was eventually banned at its 40th print run in 1998, found to be obscene and dangerous to the institution of marriage. After a two-year trial, the publication of her book was again permitted. The book was also made into a film. Asena died in July 2006. Her coffin was carried only by women.

A Century of Feminism in Turkey - June 2007

A Century of Feminism in Turkey

The women´s movement in Turkey has its roots in the 19th century Ottoman society when educated urban women started to discuss and write about women´s rights. At the time Islamic law was the source of family law. Women and their status in society were central to the reform agenda of the Turkish Republic which emerged in 1923. At the same time, tensions arose between republican leaders and women activists. It took more than 40 years before a new grass roots women´s movement emerged again in Turkey. Led by academics and writers, the new movement of the 1980s was inspired by the experience of feminism in other countries.

Duygu Asena benim guzel buldugum nadir feminstlerden biriydi. Tanri ruhunu sad etsin !

 

Bir TV programinda, "Nazim Hikmet bir kartpostal sairidir" demisti. Diger konusmacilardan merhum sair Can Yucel´in ona cevabi tarihe gecmistir, ama burada yazmaya terbiyem musait degil.

 

Program o noktada kesilmis ve her ikisi de salonu terketmek zorunda kalmislardi.

 

 

Duygu Asena was one of the rare feminists that I personally found attractve. May her soul rest in peace !

 

In a TV program, she had called Nazim Hikmet a post card poet.  The reply she got from poet Can Yucel (also deceased now) made history. Unfortunately, I am too decent to repeat it here.

 

The program was immediately interrupted at that point. When program had resumed, neither were present any longer.

AlphaF, thanks for the informations about Duygu Asena, even though they were provided in Turkish. After all, this is a Turkish site. And there are not many turkish here providing informations on Turkish feminists.
