My research interrogates on how gender equality in representation and power share have been incorporated to the Turkish political agenda within the realms of feminist and party politics. As such, i examine gender equality claims of feminist groups and scrutinize if and how these claims are channeled to parliamentary politics. Within this context, I elaborate how feminist claims are shaped in relation and in response to both national and international developments and discuss how, to what extent and through which actors they shape mainstream gender equality politics in Turkey.
