Dateline tonight looks at how activists in Turkey are campaigning against domestic violence and the failure to protect women.
Episode Eight: Dying To Divorce
Dateline takes viewers into the heart of Turkey’s gender-based violence crisis and the recent political events that have eroded democratic freedoms and women’s rights.
In Turkey, 38 per cent of married women have experienced physical and/or sexual violence and the number of reported deaths due to domestic violence is rising.
Though Turkey has established laws aimed at ending violence against women, activists say the current political and judicial leaders are failing to protect women and prosecute perpetrators of violence.
