An Impromptu Uprising: Ethnographic Reflections on the Gezi Park Protests in Turkey: Masculinized Power, Queered Resistance

The uprisings in Turkey seem to be for a good cause. This feminist movement is empowering women, shutting down sexism from the government and letting people come out of their shell and express themselves. The Prime Minister has said many insulting things about females, and his expectations of them are outdated. I do not agree that people were making comments about his sexuality and other stuff, because people are trying to gain respect and rights, but they are bashing him by using the words that he said. Overall, I agree with the people’s or women’s argument, but I do not necessarily agree with how they are going about it.
