Overview - About The Summit

The Women and Democracy Association involved in a variety of activities related to women with the object of contributing to the development and reinforcement of democracy, rule of law, human rights and respect for general emancipation by fighting for women’s rights since its foundation, will organize the first “International Women and Justice Summit” in cooperation with the Ministry of Family and Social Policies, between November 25-26, 2016, on “Women and Justice” within the scope of International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women, based on gender mainstreaming, violence affecting women incommersurably in all spheres in theory and practice.

Major progress has been made with regards to women’s rights and democracy on both nationally and internationally. Despite becoming active players in the public sphere and decision-making mechanism, unjust treatment in terms of gender continues to persist in every field. Women are still exposed to gender-based violence and discrimination in all circumstances.
