Tutkun, Omer
International Journal of Educational Reform, v15 n2 p164-184 Spr 2006
Turkey has been undergoing significant economical, social, and cultural changes for the last 20 years. It is inevitable that the society and its individuals are affected by this change. From this point of view, the purpose of this research was to determine the extent to which women in Turkey have been affected by this change. According to the findings about the psychopathology levels of women throughout Turkey, women have all the psychopathology symptoms although at various levels. In Turkey, where the society is a transition society, the reasons for the elevated levels of women having psychopathological symptoms include factors such as generation conflicts, housework, child care, employment, less social participation, economical insufficiency, cultural dependency/passivity, motherhood, spouse role (i.e., the dominance of men in the society), and exposure to violence.
