Bilkent Students’ Ideas on International Women’s Day

Pablo 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. Student)

As the word "woman" gains meaning only through its difference from the word "man," International Women’s Day would mean nothing without gender dichotomies.

The discontinuity of meaning is not unique to gender, but International Women’s Day, too, has been running up against the shift of meaning from the working women’s 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.
