Abstract

This article presents two arguments about women’s rights in Turkey and the lack of their implementation, as developed in the Türk Kadını magazine, published between 1966 and 1974. Our study is qualitative rather than quantitative, aiming at pointing to the existence of a certain discourse rather than to prove its impact. The results of our study contribute to the wider field of Turkish women’s studies, by showing the presence of certain arguments concerning women’s rights that has not been previously studied; moreover, our study points to the value of historical media studies to the wider field of empirical women’s studies. The two arguments are the incomplete emancipation of Anatolian women argument (IEAWA) and the emancipated but unliberated Turkish women argument (EUTWA), respectively. While the two arguments point to different explanations for the lack of implementation of Turkish women’s rights, both focus on the context and conditions of Anatolian women.

Deux arguments sur les droits de la femme dans le magazine Türk Kadını 1966-1974

Abstract

Cet article présente deux arguments sur les droits des femmes en Turquie et le manque de leur mise en oeuvre, développés dans le magazine Türk Kadını, publié entre 1966 et 1974. Notre étude est qualitative plutôt que quantitative, visant à montrer l’existence d’un certain discours plutôt que pour prouver son impact. Les résultats de notre étude contribuent au domaine plus large des études féminines turques, en montrant la présence de certains arguments concernant les droits des femmes qui n’ont pas été étudiés auparavant; de plus, notre étude souligne la valeur des études sur les médias historiques dans le domaine plus large des études empiriques sur les femmes. Les deux arguments sont l’argument de l’émancipation incomplète des femmes anatoliennes (IEAWA) et l’argument des femmes turques émancipées mais non libérées (EUTWA), respectivement. Alors que les deux arguments suggèrent des explications différentes pour le manque de mise en oeuvre des droits des femmes turques, tous deux se concentrent sur le contexte et les conditions des femmes anatoliennes.

Abstract

Bu makale, 1966 ve 1974 yılları arasında yayınlanmış olan Türk Kadını dergisinde geliştirildiği şekliyle, Türkiye’de kadın hakları ve bu hakların uygulanmaması hakkında iki argüman sunmaktadır. Çalışmamız nicel değil, nitel bir çalışma olup, sadece belli bir söylemin varlığına işaret etmeyi amaçlamaktadır; söz konusu söylemin etkisini ispat etmek çalışmamız kapsamına girmemektedir. Çalışmamızın sonuçları, kadın haklarıyla ilgili daha önce çalışılmamış bazı argümanların varlığını göstererek Türkiye’de kadın çalışmaları alanına katkıda bulunmaktadır; ayrıca çalışma tarihsel medya çalışmalarının daha geniş ampirik kadın çalışmaları alanı için olan değerine işaret etmektedir. Çalışmada söz konusu olan iki argüman sırasıyla, Anadolu kadınlarının eksik kurtuluşu argümanı (IEAWA) ve kurtulmuş ama özgürleşmemiş kadın argümanıdır (EUTWA). Her iki argüman Türk kadınlarının haklarının uygulanmaması hakkında farklı açıklamalara işaret ederken, her ikisi de Anadolu kadınlarının bağlam ve koşullarına odaklanmaktadır.
