Savaşın ve dünyanın çirkin yüzünü gösteren fotoğrafları yeniden yorumlayan ve dünyanın gerçekte nasıl bir yer olması gerektiğini bizlere tüm çıplaklığı ile

It’s thought she tried to fend off her attacker with pepper
spray but was stabbed and then hit on the head with a metal bar. Her
body was discovered in a riverbed several days later.
As BBC Trending has been reporting all week,
Aslan’s murder has led to a huge outpouring of anger, not only on the
streets but also online. More than 6 million people have tweeted her
name and thousands have used social media to share their own stories of
sexual abuse. Most of those seemed to be women. But it was in
neighbouring Azerbaijan, where most people understand Turkish, that
men’s reaction first seemed to trend.
The Twitter hashtag started on Wednesday. To date, about
1,500 people have used it, with roughly equal take up by men and women
online (51% and 49% respectively.) Their rallying cry on Facebook
states: “If a miniskirt is responsible for everything, if [wearing] a
miniskirt means immorality and unchastity, if a woman who wears a
miniskirt is sending an invitation about what will happen to her, then
we are also sending an invitation!”
However not everyone is convinced the campaign is either necessary or a good idea. “What’s to get? What inept action!”
said one Azeri tweeter, Javidan Aghayev. He told BBC Trending he
thought the campaign was “Düşük,” which means stupid in Azeri slang.
“Instead of supporting women in a real, practical way, wearing a skirt
or a wig is not going to have any positive effect,” he says. “In
conservative civilizations like Turkey and Azerbaijan, this campaign is
not going to help. Maybe in Europe, but not here.”
But other men felt the Aslan case was so horrific that it provoked deep reflection. “Very big incidents must take place in order for people
to understand that something is wrong in Turkey,” says Cenkal Karakaya,
a male tweeter in Turkey.
“We can’t see how deadly decayed buildings are until there is an
earthquake. We can’t see the need to create safe working conditions for a
mine until tragedies like Soma happen. We become aware only after things happen to us”.
If the point of this miniskirt campaign was to raise
awareness and secure media coverage, then arguably it has worked. Most
of the accounts tweeting images of the men in mini skirts were
well-known news outlets such as Hurriyet.
The debate over the Aslan case has also been taken up by
Azerbaijan’s officials, who held a parliamentary debate about rape and
domestic violence earlier this week, led by MP Elmira Akhundova.
