by Kübra Gültekin, Ellen C. Leichtman, Carole G. Garrison
Police Practice and Research ()


This study focuses on the cultural context and gender issues of the policewomen of Ankara, Turkey, a modern, secular, Muslim city. The authors provide a brief history of the status of women in Turkey, and analyze the place of women both in the current Turkish labor market and within the Turkish police. A non-random, open-ended survey was done of various ranks of Turkish women police officers in Ankara about their work and personal conditions. The results confirm that women officers have gender work-related problems. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2010 APA, all rights reserved) (journal abstract)
