Headscarf Politics in Turkey : A Postcolonial Reading, Hardback Book

Headscarf Politics in Turkey : A Postcolonial Reading Hardback



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.
