Shake It Baby...
Discrimination Against Women
Discrimination against women, both in getting a particular job and receiving the same pay as men for identical jobs, still prevails in Turkey.

I agree with this article. The part where the women was asking too high of a starting salary was an issue we had dealt with also in out pharmacy. We were looking for an experienced sales lady for our lines of derma cosmetics. We had one applicant that had no formal education, had less then a years experience in the field and was looking for her second job as she was unemployed, was not married but had a child and could only work 7 hours a day, would not work Saturdays. She said the lowest salary she would work for was 2,000 Lira a month plus we had to buy her lunch at a restaurant everday ( Even though we have a full complete kitchen in the pharmacy) and we had to pay for her taxi to and from work....another 500 lira a month. She was actually shocked when we decided not to hire her.

works both ways !

WOMEN WHO KNOW THEIR PLACE.



Barbara Walters, of 20/20, did a story on gender roles in Kabul , Afghanistan , several years before the Afghan conflict.



She noted that women customarily walked five paces behind their husbands.



She recently returned to Kabul and observed that women still walk behind their husbands. Despite the overthrow of the oppressive Taliban regime, the women now seem to, and are happy to, maintain the old custom.



Ms. Walters approached one of the Afghani women and asked, 'Why do you now seem happy with an old custom that you once tried so desperately to change?'



The woman looked Ms. Walters straight in the eyes, and without hesitation said, 'Land Mines.'
