Increasing the Advocacy Capacities of Women, Specifically Muslim Women

In 2018, the year we found the association, we organized workshops titled “Women, Body, and Sexuality” in five cities across Turkey with the support of the Swedish Consulate, and in November, we organized a two-day conference titled “Muslim Feminists Tell Their Stories: First Steps Towards Producing and Struggling Together”. In early December, we visited Kuala Lumpur, to visit one of the world’s leading Muslim feminist non-governmental organizations Musawah and Sisters In Islam, as well as non-governmental organizations working directly on violence, and LGBTI+ rights. We talked about the knowledge building we do in our own contexts and the advocacy activities we carry out and discussed future collaboration opportunities.
