TURKEY: Fewer Women Employed

Hurriyetdailynews.com on 11 March reported that according to UNFPA’s Zahidul Huque, “Despite steps taken to improve the gender quality in Turkey's labour force, the rate of female participation in the workforce has decreased 10 percent.” He also said they have observed that “access to reproductive health services for young adults is more difficult than it used to be. Society is becoming more conservative, government is also more conservative. Providers of help are also becoming less proactive in providing reproductive health education and services to young adults.” Read in English: Hurriyetdailynews.com
