Bilkent Students Ideas on International Womens Day
Picasso, Seated Women 1937
March 8 is International
Women's Day. To mark the occasion, we asked some Political Science Ph.D.
students for their views on the meaning of the day, as well as on the
progress, or lack thereof, in women's rights and equality.
Yeliz Bulgurcu (POLS Ph.D.
As the word "woman" gains
meaning only through its difference from the word "man," International
Womens Day would mean nothing without gender dichotomies. Although most
of us like to make generalizations about the meaning of being a woman or
a man, heterosexual or homosexual, it is crucial to acknowledge that the
definition of gender categories has been changing over both time and
space. The discontinuity of meaning is not unique to gender, but
International Womens Day, too, has been running up against the shift of
meaning from the working womens struggle to divergent platforms of
expressing women's demands, such as abortion rights and legal protection
against social, political and economic discrimination, domestic violence,
honor crimes and so on. (Continued)
