Women's Rights in Turkey

"EU financial support for gender equality and women's rights in Turkey so far amounts to over € 80 million. Such a support has led to useful projects on a wide range of issues, from combating violence against women to supporting women entrepreneurship, active labour market measures or the establishment of shelters for women subjected to domestic violence", stated European Commissioner for Enlargement and Neighbourhood Policy Štefan Füle at the meeting organised by Dutch MEP Emine Bozkurt in the European Parliament on 29 April 2010.
