♦Accompanied by 30+ activists, human rights defenders, journalists, and lawyers.

♦More than 50,000+ expected attendees worldwide.

When and where?

March 21st, 2021 2:00 PM EST (New York)


Several activists are going to join the protest with their 1-minute remarks on the violence, femicide, discrimination, and political oppression targeting women and children in Turkey and around the World.
An attendance of 50,000+ is anticipated.


These protests are aimed towards raising awareness about the harrowing conditions of women and children suffering the injustice and devastating witch hunt in Turkey and around the World.

Greater participation leads to pressure towards the betterment of conditions for all women, especially those inhumanely imprisoned as political captives.

It is often the trust that they are not forgotten that keeps people content rather than their optimism.


The more the number of viewers, the higher the impact. So you can help first by joining the event and invite others to bea part of this worthwhile event.

The size of the impact is measured by the number of viewers during online events, and that is simply a number of viewers from different devices, i.e phones, computers, or tablets.

On the 21st of March 2021, please devote your time between 2:00-3:00 PM EST to the victims and be a part of this meaningful event. It starts at 6 PM in London, 9 PM in Athens, 7 PM in Berlin at 3 PM in Brasil, and 7 PM in Kenya.

You can share this information with your friends and social circles and encourage them to be on the channel at their respective time. Even though they may be busy at the time, you will contribute by sharing the atrocities committed and help raise awareness on the issue.

You can organize zoom meetings or Social Media events to create synergy and motivation. You can also share your enthusiasm with us so that we can get fired up as well!

You can ask human rights activists, community leaders, journalists, and lawmakers to join this online event with a 1-minute video recording to be broadcast during the protest. Send us an e-mail to help@silencedturkey.org about the details.

We hope you become a part of this event even with a nod or a tiny effort and help thousands of women and children get out of their misery

2020 has been hard. We have been hit by a pandemic that halted life at multiple levels. This sudden and global event made us realize how valuable our little conveniences in life are. We now realize what it means to travel, have coffee outside our home, meet with friends, and shop for groceries. Now we miss the chores we despised.
There is another pandemic that has been here for years: Violence against women. Women in most places cannot live their ordinary lives without brutality, harassment, inequality, or aggression. Globally, 35 % of women have experienced physical and/or sexual violence by their partners. 137 women are killed by a member of their family every day. Calls to help lines have increased five-fold in some countries during the COVID-19 epidemic.

Some countries are especially darker. In 2009, 42% of Turkish women between the ages of 15 and 60 were subject to violence. Global Gender Gap Index 2020 ranks Turkey 130th among 153 countries.

Since the alleged coup attempt in 2016, women’s rights have been systematically ignored and violated by the Turkish authorities. Many women in custody were subject to strip searches. They were asked to undress and squat while naked, sometimes with cameras present. More than 5,000 women have been jailed as political prisoners, 600 women were held in detention with their children including 100 women who were pregnant or had just given birth. 780 babies are imprisoned alongside with their mothers who were not convicted of any crimes.

AST will organize protests in more than 25 locations including, New York, Washington, Toronto to raise the voice to end the violence against women in Turkey and in the World. Your participation will be extremely valuable to all the women suffering under the violence and motivate who are joining their efforts to make a difference.

Be a part of these protests, help the victims of violence, spread the word!
