It was a frustrating surprise to me when I heard last week that the successful rock singer Aylin Aslim’s song Güldünya was censored and prohibited by TRT, Turkey’s government-ruled television and radio corporation…

The song’s lyrics are protesting the murder (or the killing in the name of family honor) of Güldünya Tören in February 2004…

As many people keep on ignoring the severe reality, at least a third of all women in Turkey are estimated to be victims of physical violence within their families…
