CHP leader Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu, who is constantly applauded by the secular, nationalist, laic, socialist and feminist women's organizations who define themselves as 'contemporary women', took attention while criticizes Turkish Parliament Speaker İsmail Kahraman in his speech at today's parliamentary group meeting.
In recent days, CHP, which has been accused of creating a vicious agenda on women by calling the bill on 'early marriage' regulation as 'sexual abuse', has had interesting events at the group meeting today.
It was observed that women participated in the CHP group meeting frequently, and seen that the speech made by Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu was often interrupted by applause.
Kılıçdaroğlu, while severely criticized Speaker of Parliament Ismail Kahraman in his speech, after his words as 'a man who is afraid of women cannot be called as a man', the vast majority of the women made applauds.
Kılıçdaroğlu which correlated the man’s courage with afraid of women or not is curious now how women's organizations will react.
Kılıçdaroğlu which stating that he is against violence on women, qualifying man with his courage against women, shocked audience who were watching this on televisions. On the one hand, the women's rights advocacy and on the other hand the courage of the man's against the woman was measured in the hall, no reaction was expressed, instead applauded was seen strange.
Following words came forward from the interesting speech of Kılıçdaroğlu:
'You have all came together today. Women came mainly. You gave honor. You arrive, sound system of the Turkish Grand National Assembly distorted just to not make your voice is to be heard, closed TV of Parliament, so no one could see it. I address the president of the Assembly; if you have honor, if you have an identity, if you have morality, you will find the man who did this and put in front of the door. Otherwise I will send you all the charges.'
'A man who is afraid of women cannot be called a man'
Kılıçdaroğlu said, 'One who cannot protect the Parliament cannot not protect their own honor.” and he continued:
'One who not saying anything to one sabotage a meeting cannot be president of the Assembly. A man who is afraid of women cannot be called as a man. Beautiful women of this country, poems written for you. Novels were written for you, movies were filmed. You became breadwinner to your home. You cosset on your child that even if the fly bites, you ask if it hurts. And now, you are again claiming your country, as if you lay claim to your children. It is Ghazi Mustafa Kemal Atatürk who gives the right to choose and to be elected, no one forgets, no woman forgets.' (ILKHA)
