Turkey's president on February 16, 2015, described violence against women as the "bleeding wound" of the country after a woman was stabbed and beaten to death after trying to fight off a man trying to rape her. Despite a surge in violence against women in Turkey last year, the particularly brutal, and public, attack on Ozgecan Aslan, 20, has become a rallying point, prompting protests and condemnation by politicians.
