:: Events:: On November 16th will be held at the University of Genoa the seminar “Pronatalism and Reproductive (In)justice in Turkey” with Mary Lou O’Neil, director of the Gender and Women’s Studies Research Center of Kadir Has University, Istanbul, Turkey.

In more recent years Turkey has returned to its pronatalist roots. The rise of pronatalism and antigender forces in Turkey have led to an insistence on “women being women” and this has become narrowly defined as motherhood and the insistance of women continuing in largely traditional roles. This is seen in a restriction of reproductive health services ranging from access to family planning services, birth control, emergency contraception and abortion care.

Keynote Speech: Mary Lou O’Neal, Kadir Has University, Istanbul, Turkey.

Chairperson: Carla Maria Reale, University of Genoa
