Abstract | Full Text

This article aims to expand the reflection upon the ways of Muslim women's participation in politics through a close examination of the Turkish context. Therefore as peculiarities of the Turkish case, it investigates the changes generated by the modernization initiated by the Ottoman élite in the first decades of the 19th century and carried on by the nationalists after the foundation of the Turkish Republic in 1923. Focused on the power dynamics underlying the relation between the sexes and gender equilibrium, the article will also consider the most important forms of participation and political activities, which above all in the last decades of the 20th century attest to the controversial and incomplete advancement of Turkish women towards the affirmation of their subjectivity.
