What does it mean to have a right that you did not fight for?

Turkey gave full political rights to women in the 1930s. However, there still remained a large difference in the formal rights and social position of the modern women in Istanbul, Turkey.

My documentary aims to portray the voices of women in Istanbul.

Directed and produced by Amanda Chew.
Final project for MAVA311 Intro to Filmmaking class at Koç University in Istanbul.
Shot using a Canon EOS 600D and edited with Final Cut Pro X.

    It was supposed to be the year we finally shattered the glass ceiling. But a sharply split female electorate helped ensure that misogyny and sexism would live to see another day. In this 4x60’ docuseries, we watch as eight American women of opposing political, economic and cultural backgrounds explore the reasons behind their deepest and most visceral divisions, and what can be done to repair the rift.
