KADININ AÇISI

Kadınlar, kadına karsı siddeti anlatıyor!

“Aile içi siddet, aile içinde meydana gelen duygusal, ekonomik, cinsel ve fiziksel sekillerde kendini gösteren kadına yönelik siddet biçimidir. Aile içi siddet, cinsiyete dayalı bir siddet biçimi olup tehdit, dayatma ve kontrol yoluyla kadın üzerinde baskı ve üstünlük kurmayı amaçlar”. IMECE, bu yarısma ile kadınların gözünden siddeti anlatmayı ve Türk, Kürt ve Kıbrıslı Türk kadınların yasadıkları siddet konusunda farkındalık yaratmayı amaçlamaktadır.

Yarısmaya katılmak için aile içi siddeti güçlü ve etkili bir dille ya da kompozisyonla anlatan kısa film senaryolarınızı ve/ya da fotograflarınızı gönderin.

THIS IS RACIST! TURKISH CYPRIOT FAMILIES 1ST STARTED COMING TO LONDON FROM AS EARLY AS 1930 TO 1974 BECAUSE OF THE EOKA GREEK TERRORISTS IN CYPRUS KILLING THEM & BRITISH SERVICEMEN ON THE ISLAND! BUT TURKS FROM TURKEY STARTED COMING TO ENGLAND FROM 1980 & KURDS FROM IRAN, IRAQ, SYRIA & EUROPEAN TURKEY CAME TO BRITIAN AS REFUGEES FROM 1990. ALL 3 ARE ETHNICALLY & PHYSICALLY DIFFERENT! EVEN THE WAY THEY THINK IS DIFFERENT! PLEASE STOP CLASSING THEM THIS WAY!
