Taksim - One Woman's Protest
Reuters photographer Murad Sezer spent time with Ayse Diskaya, a 48-year-old housewife who lives in a poor neighbourhood of Istanbul and has joined the anti-government protest in Istanbul's Gezi Park. She is both an active member of the left-wing cultural association Halkevleri and a women's rights activist, who has devoted herself to women's issues for many years. Now she is taking part in the anti-government protest movement because she says she thinks changes brought in under Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan threaten modern, secular society in a way that will have a negative impact on women.
