President Recep Tayyip Erdogan met with a family of women who were victims of violence at an Iftar dinner at the Dolmabahce Labor Bureau.
“Ignorance is the only reason women’s hammers are at the forefront.”
At the haste dinner, President Erdogan said: “To commemorate all the women who were victims of violence, especially their brothers and sisters with relatives. To Shre, Nurai, Azura, Dilek, Shira, Dilala, Bashak, Sezen, Emine, Penal, Museien, Ozgekan, Hatis. Of course. We cannot explain the pain of loss experienced by mothers, fathers, siblings and other relatives. Our only source of comfort is very much against the victims of violence and femiside in our country. It is highly sensitive, but I would like to express with great sadness that, as in most parts of the world, cases of violence against women and the murder of women are still ongoing in our country. Basically, it is unacceptable for one person to violence against another, especially to kill others. When it comes to women, this situation becomes even more serious, unjust and tragic. In our civilization, women are a symbol of compassion, love, and self-sacrifice. Our beliefs are not addressed to women or men, but to humans themselves, beyond all differences in gender, race, and language. And obligations are personal. People who do not know their past try to draw another picture, but in our history women have always been very important and decisive in social life. I had a place that was respected. How does Femiside come to the fore in a society like this? Like many other questions, there is only one answer to this. I’m ignorant. Don’t think of ignorance as mere ignorance, college education. The western nations they say are developed, civilized, and modern are in violence and murder against women in the first place. We face issues other than the level of education and welfare. The reason we are us is ignorance due to our lack of knowledge of our values, beliefs and civilizations. We are women. I am fighting this ignorance that is the source of violence against. “

“We are determined to save the country from violence and murder against women.”
“The most important steps have been taken in the struggle at all levels of society and the nation, starting with the family,” Erdogan continued his speech. Violence against women and murder of women. Law, justice, administration, and most importantly, comprehensive measures are taken that cover the mind and mind. We will continue to fight relentlessly in this way until the cause is eliminated along with the violence itself. Beyond the fact that confronting violence against women is part of our business obligations, I consider people a burden and my need for responsibility for my deceased mother, wife and daughter. If you remember, we said the mother shouldn’t cry to end the horror of the separatists. Now we say the same thing about violence against women and femicide. For this reason, I hope that the day when moms, dads, and siblings will not cry will not be long. Over the last 20 years, we have brought a lot of legal and administrative regulations to our country to prevent violence and femicide against women. With the constitutional amendments in 2004 and 2010, we have brought this struggle to the strongest legal basis. We have assured that the legislature will also take ownership of this issue, along with the Commission on Equal Opportunity for Women and Men, which encouraged its establishment in Parliament. Each of our ministries has implemented historical significance and reforms in their respective areas of work. For example, the Turkish criminal law, which came into force in 2005, has become a much more important turning point in increasing judgments on women’s murders. Undoubtedly, the biggest revolution in this matter is our 2012 law on family protection and prevention of violence against women. For the first time, the law defined concepts such as violence, domestic violence, and violence against women, protecting women in all areas of their lives. With the widespread use of violence prevention and surveillance centers in particular, mechanisms have been established to guide women. “
“We will continue to fight until we eliminate the cause of the violence.”
President Erdogan continued his speech by explaining innovations in violence against women, saying: There is an effective and widespread struggle. We have endeavored to ensure that the goals, strategies and activities contained in the four individual action plans for combating violence against women prepared so far are implemented. Significant progress has been made in all areas, from protection and prevention services to social awareness. We support women in need of bureaus to combat domestic violence and violence against women established in 81 states and districts within police organizations. The practice of violence against women, abbreviated as KADES, is a globally recognized practice that gives women victims of violence the opportunity to reach our safety and intervene quickly with a single click. .. This application has been translated into 5 different languages and guarantees that foreign women in our country will benefit from this service. Over the last four years, more than 3.5 million people have downloaded this application and more than 360,000 have reported it. A special counsel has been appointed to effectively investigate the matter and quickly conclude it before the judiciary. The injunction court was decided to specialize in determining protective and preventive injunctions. Last year, 280,000 injunctions were ordered by the court. It has been observed that the number of arrest warrants for crimes against women increased by up to 200 percent. In other words, by reducing the number of interlocutors from law enforcement to courts and public prosecutors offices to one, strong coordination was ensured. As a new step we have taken in the last few weeks, we are introducing more issues, especially with regard to discounts. We know that this problem cannot be solved by increasing interventions and penalties. We do not forget the fact that violence is the result, not the cause. “We will continue to struggle until we eliminate the cause of the violence,” he said.
