Asia In The Shadows
The Tragic Case of Pınar Gültekin
Pınar had just graduated from university and had plans to move back home in time for Eid. What was supposed to be a short shopping spree at the local mall turned into an intense 5-day search for the young woman from Bitlis. Where had Pınar gone and who was she with?
At a time of social upheaval in many parts of the world and during a global pandemic, Pınar’s case would force Turkey to do some introspection and evaluation as to the treatment of women in Turkish society. Despite living under a government hell bent on curtailing women’s rights, it seems that women in Turkey will continue their fight that Pınar, unknowingly, helped start.
