More Detail


Women have been struggling to get equal life standards as men in the last few centuries. Currently, women have the chance to get education and can get leadership positions. Yet, the responsibility of domestic work is still considered as a part of women’s duties making the women work both outside to earn their bread and inside to serve their husbands and children. In Turkey, women from higher socio-economical status get aid from lower socio-economic level. Most of these women have very little or no education. While educated women lead rather more comfortable lives, the uneducated women have the burden of working outside and in their own houses. The present study is based on the Turkish television serial “Don’t Let Children Hear” (Çocuklar Duymasın) and explores the contents of the messages given by women from higher and lower socio-economical status.
