A pro-government women's rights organization has voiced support to the Istanbul Convention, which aims to combat violence against women and from which the Turkish government seeks to withdraw. In its statement, KADEM responded to widely-known false facts about the convention, especially on it including "LGBT propaganda," saying that it doesn't promote homosexuality.
Turkish President Recep Erdoğan welcomed a new grandson in the early hours of June 30. The president's eighth grandchild was born to Finance Minister Berat Albayrak and Esra Erdoğan.
Conservative circles, including KADEM, regard the concept of equality as narrow and inadequate. According to them, the history of the world’s women’s rights movement has been rotating around a narrow and inadequate concept. Furthermore, they argue that women cannot exist without the family.
Women and Democracy Association (KADEM), of which President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan's daughter Sümeyye Erdoğan Bayraktar is the deputy chair, said that the trend called "men should know their place, which aims to show men how their years-long sexism affect women, has come to a point that "harms our values."
