Woman in Turkey Sentenced to Five Months for ‘Insulting Men’ Online

Turkish author and influencer Pinar Yildirim was sentenced to five months in prison over a tweet that authorities allege contains the phrase, “I don’t like men.”

Yildrim says she will appeal the conviction. “Women are humiliated, insulted and harassed in every field, and our courts prefer to be insensitive to these issues for some reason,” she says. “Every week a woman is killed because of domestic violence. These murders are romanticised in the press and presented as ‘love murders’.”

In October alone, 18 women were murdered by men and 19 died under suspicious circumstances in Turkey, according to the We Will Stop Femicide Platform.
