Every Woman is Beautiful But Not Every Man Can See It

Today is one out of not-so-many days where I feel confident about my gender and can walk in the street with my head held high. It's tough to be a woman in today's world -and who am I to talk about these things since I'm only 17 right?!- and it's even harder to be a woman in Turkey. Even though I'm living in one of the most modern parts of Istanbul, Turkey, it's very unfortunate that I, myself, had been witnessed and been victimised by a lot of abuse, not physical thanks to God, but mental and verbal. Don't get me wrong, I love my country and I love its citizens who have the deepest and kindest hearts, but we've got a lot of jerks and stupid men who see women only as a sex object rather than a human being and only look low on them. This mentality of men -and women who give men the opportunity to act them like that- has to change. It's very heart breaking, to be writing these in 21st century. 

After writing about politics and the sad environment that I'm living in, let's talk about fashion! I guess this outfit suits this day pretty well, since it's very girly. Even too girly for me I must say. I am not a girly girl although I like to flatter myself with wearing skirts and stuff every now and then. But I'd rather wear jeans and converses than skirts and heels. 

Yesterday, my mom and I were on the streets handing out brochures and some sort of thought provoking propagandas to gather women and celebrate Women's Day. Happy Women's Day to all of the hard working mothers, sisters, daughters, wives, teachers, and everyone else. But most importantly, Happy Women's Day to You.




Wearing: Denim Shirt, BERSHKA // Skirt & Belt, STRADIVARIUS // Socks, PENTI // World Watch, AMERICAN APPAREL // Feather Earring-y thingy, THRIFT SHOP // Heels, MOM'S (what a surprise).

Bugün, cinsiyetim hakkında kötü hissetmediğim ve sokakta başım dik yürüyebileceğim sayılı günlerden biri. Bugünkü dünyada bir kadın olmak zor (ve ben kim oluyorum da bunu söyleyebiliyorum?!) ve Türkiye'de bir kadın olmak daha da zor. Her ne kadar İstanbul'un en modern yerlerinden birinde yaşıyor olsam da, ben de şiddete uğradım, fiziksel olarak değil Tanrı'ya şükürler olsun ki, ama sözlü ve mental olarak. Beni yanlış anlamayın, ülkemi çok seviyorum, dünyanın en derin ve yardımsever kalpli olan insanlarını da, fakat burada bazı iğrenç erkeklerin, kadınları insan olarak değil, birer seks objesi olarak gördükleri aşikar bir gerçek. Erkeklerdeki bu mentalite, -ve kendilerini ezmelerine izin veren kadınlardaki bu bakış açışı- değişmeli. Bunları 21. yüzyılda yazıyor olmam çok kalp kırıcı.

Politika ve içinde yaşadığım üzücü ortamdan bahsettikten sonra biraz da modadan konuşalım! Sanırım bu kıyafet, bu gün için son derece uygun, gayet cici kız kıyafeti. Hatta benim için fazla cici kız. Ben, böyle giyinmeyi pek sevmem açıkçası, her ne kadar etek vs giyerek kendimi zaman zaman şımartmayı sevsem de. Ben her zaman kot ve Converse'i, etek ve topukluya tercih edenlerden olmuşumdur. 

Dün, annem ve ben sokaklarda broşür ve düşündürücü propagandalar dağıttık, kadınları tek bir çatı altında toplayıp bu günü kutlamak için. Azimli bütün annelerin, ablaların, karıların, kızların, öğretmenlerin ve diğer herkesin Kadınlar Günü Kutlu Olsun. Ve daha da önemlisi, sizin Kadınlar Gününüz Kutlu Olsun.

  1. I know what u are talking about, in Turkey, even in Istanbul, it's really hard even to walk alone. Why do some men think that they have such right to treat girls like this!? To be a woman with personality and own way of thinking is a real battle.
    Lovely pictures as well;)
    Have a great time!

    Best wishes, Alexandra

  9. Happy Women's day Eda! :) It's great that you say your honest opinion about the current situation in your country. I've had my own fair share of guys saying whatever comes to their minds - in Finland, in Turkey and in many other countries too. But the great thing is that there are sweet and understanding males among the bad ones! :) You have mixed those pieces beautifully in your outfit, I adore especially your denim shirt<3

  17. Happy womens day a bit late :D! I know what you mean about men who don't respect women. Same is in Bosnia. There are of course men who do respect women, even more than finnish guys do! But there are also bunch of those guys who really see you as an sex object and can call you different names and to be honest it's scary if you are alone when some of those men emerge. But let's keep pur head held high and be proud of who we are! :)
