Nilüfer City Council Women's Council members held a press release to protest the practice of "wagons with priority for female passengers" initiated by Bursa Metropolitan Municipality with the claim of "preventing harassment" at Bursaray stations.
Reading the press release, President of the Women's Council Cevriye Coşkun Kayış said, 'We women did not accept this practice, we do not, we will not. We will not get on the isolation wagons. Neither in Bursa nor anywhere else! ' He stated that they will continue the struggle until the misogynist practices come to an end. In the press release held at Nilüfer City Council, Nilüfer Municipality Council Member Aysel Okumuş was also present.
We do not accept the separate wagon application that secures women, we will not!
We women do not accept the practice of "wagons with priority for female passengers" initiated by Bursa Metropolitan Municipality with the claim of "preventing harassment". The purpose of this practice is not to protect women from harassment. It is the first step and attempt to get women in an endless spiral of isolation. We see and reject what is intended to be done!
Target; to remove women from all public spaces, to exclude them from work life, to separate them from social life, to suppress their personal development and existence, and to bury them as a result.
If you want to solve the problem of harassment against women and children, start with education first… Start by keeping children - young people, girls and boys together, making each other accept each other, raising awareness within the same "scientific education system" and educating them.
It's not like separating women like that, separating women and men, putting women at home. What goes on is that the harassmentist group does not go beyond the increase and encouragement.
On the other hand, due to the shortage of wagons in transportation, you make Bursa's women, men, young, old, children and children travel like a fish hoard.
Do you think to correct the conditions of fish that are not suitable for people and urban life in this way ..?
By hiding their failures in transportation, we are trying to isolate women, and all men as potential harassers. As the saying goes, whatever the idea of the dervish is, the chant.
We do not, we do not accept this application, women. And we will continue to fight until the application is canceled.
We will continue to exist in all areas of life.
We're not gonna get on the isolation wagons.
Neither in Bursa nor elsewhere!
Keep fighting until the misogynist practices end. "
