Headscarf Politics in Turkey

A Postcolonial Reading

Paperback - 2014
Rate this:
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.
