📙 Headscarf Politics in Turkey: A Postcolonial Reading by Merve Kavakci Islam (auth.) — free pdf


This book questions the 'role model' status of the Turkish Republic with respect to the advancement of female agency in a secular context by using the study of women with headscarves as a case in point. Turkey's commitment to modernization depends heavily on secularism which involves, among other things, the westernization of women's appearance.
