"Islam, Christianity and Judaism are patriarchal, monotheistic religions and are bound by one thing – their contempt of women! When confronted with the issue of women’s plight in Muslim countries, Muslim apologists insist that their religion has been misunderstood and that Islam actually grants women certain rights. They blame tradition and tribal societies for the low status and oppression of women. Since Islam exerts absolute power over every aspect of Muslim society, from diet to relations between the sexes, why has it failed in fourteen centuries of its existence, to eradicate injustices against half of its adherents? Turkey’s women are the most liberated in the Muslim world. This was achieved not through Islamic reformation but through secularisation established by the founder of the modern Turkish republic Kemal Ataturk. Kemal was the product of secular education and had always admired Western culture. He pursued a program of westernisation that affected all aspects of Turkish life – women were granted the vote and veiling was prohibited. If the Turkish system were to collapse and replaced by an Islamic theocracy we can be certain that women’s progress will be reversed and women will be at the mercy of the mullahs. In countries where there has been a raise in fundamentalism and reversal to strict religious law such as Pakistan, Sudan and Afghanistan women are targeted with vengeance and brutality..."

Your note raises some relevant and important points and issues about society. The image accompanies it well and is a strong, contrasty and graphic representation. Something to get us thinking.

This is an absolutely fascinating image. Very well structured. It is one of those images where 'blurriness' is not a defect but an artistic quality. A perfect image to accompany the note(or the other way around).
I had a quick glance at some of the other images in your gallery and I like them a lot. I will be revisiting your pages for a better examination.

oldu paşam. hem çekene bik bik et, hem de git kendin çek. toplumsal eleştiri yapınca çarşaflı çekmek mübah yani. ama çok hayvansın. nasıl güzel, sembol sembol bir arka fon. utanmasam favorileyecem yani, o kadar. allah bilir kaynarcadır bi de. ceza olarak jalabayla yürü ben de seni çekicem orda.
