2019 Report of We Will End Femicide Platform
2019 November Report of We Will End Femicide Platform

2019 Annual Report *


We say on the streets and in our monthly reports that femicides are increasing every year. Competent institutions and organizations do not show the efforts that women show for the effective implementation of Law No. 6284 and the Istanbul Convention. In 2019, when they did not effectively enforce the law, 474 of our sisters were murdered due to male violence. (*When you collect monthly reports, you may not be able to reach the figures in the annual report because there is news of the murder of women that we added to the data later.) We encountered many cases where women were found suspiciously dead at home, on the roadside, at the sea and by the stream. There have been femicides which were disguised as suicide or fire. Women were killed under protection and right after trials for divorce. The women who sought protection were murdered or injured by male violence because their demand wasn’t met. Women were killed because they wanted to leave their partners or divorce. Women were killed on the grounds that they did not accept marriage proposals. Fleeing violence, the woman who had fled violence and who lived under protection were murdered. Police intervened violently in the Las Tesis performances, which emerged against the wave of male violence spreading all over the world.


While 115 of the femicides committed in 2019 were recorded as suspicious deaths, the motive for 218 femicides couldn’t be found. Women were murdered whilst they were making decisions about their own life; 27 of them because of so called economic reasons, 114 of them because they wanted to divorce, refused to reconcile, refused a friend request. Unless it is determined by whom and why women are murdered; fair trials are made and suspects, defendants and murderers do not receive deterrent punishments and preventive measures are implemented, violence against women continues with varying degrees.


We would like to share with you the names of our 42 sisters, who were killed in December:

Of the 42 women killed in December, 20 of their murderers couldn’t be found, 11 were murdered by their husbands, 2 by their boyfriends, 1 by an ex-boyfriend, 1 by a relative, 2 by acquaintances, 1 by her father, 2 by her sons, and 2 others were murdered by people they did not know.  


This month, 12 women were killed by firearms, 6 by cutting tools, 2 by strangling, 3 by falling from heights, 6 by being battered. Unfortunately, it has not been established how 13 of them were killed.  


In December, 27 women were murdered in their homes, 5 in the middle of the street, 1 out on the land, 1 in the workplace, 2 in a hotel. Two of the murdered women were found in lakes or seas. It has not been established where 4 women were killed.


By whom were the women murdered by in 2019?


It was not possible to determine who killed 152 of the 474 women killed in 2019, 134 of them were murdered by the man they were married, 25 of whom were murdered by their ex – husband, 51 of them by the man they were together with, 8 of them by whom they were formerly together with, 29 of them were murdered by their uncle, father in law, or other relatives. 19 women were murdered by acquaintances, 15 by their father, 13 by their brother; and 25 by their son, neighbor, or some person they knew like as a parent in the same school with his child, 3 of them were murdered by people they did not know.  


Women were mostly killed in their homes in 2019


292 of them at home, 52 in the street, 9 in the car, 3 in the shop, 2 in an entertainment area, 2 in the hospital, 6 in the workplace, 1  in the cafe, 1 in the school, 5 of them were murdered in a hotel, 5 in a park and 1 in another public area. 31 of the women were murdered or their bodies were found in areas such as lakes, ponds, irrigation canals, rivers, teas, streams, riverside, seaside and beach. 32 of them were killed or found dead in areas such as the woods, forest, pasture, picnic area or garden. 3 women were murdered or found dead in deserted places such as barns and abandoned buildings. It has not been established where 29 of the women were killed.


Women were murdered mostly with firearms in 2019


185 of them were killed by firearms, 101 by cutting tools, 29 by strangling, 6 by chemical medicine, 27 by being battered, 6 by burning, 19 by falling from height. Unfortunately, it has not been established how 101 of them were killed.


The working status of women killed in 2019 still cannot be determined


It is very difficult to determine the working status of women. We think that it is important that this data is taken into consideration by the press members. According to available data, 60 of women work, 20 of them do not work, and the status of 394 women is unknown.


Women are murdered in different regions and provinces and women want cities where they don't get murdered.


6284 and the Istanbul Convention


While it is not known whether 358 of 474 women killed in 2019 had a protection order or not; 104 women did not have any suspension or protection orders.


6284 regulates many measures against people who commit violence such as restraining and protection orders; and gave women many rights from financial empowerment to identity change. This law has come into force as a result of years of struggle of women's organizations and it does protect women if it is implemented effectively



Inasmuch as the law 6284 has not been implemented efficiently, Zeliha Erdemir(32), who has a a child and lives in Aydın, has been receiving death threats by Cem Kara, whom she has been exposed to violence by since 2011 and got divorced in 2016. Cem Kara, who stayed in prison for two months and got out on parole after he kidnapped his son, was penalized with temporary debarment for three months since he held threatening her. After Zeliha Erdemir, who filed a complaint 46 times about Cem Kara, whom she used to be married to, said “Hear my voice before I die. I do not want to die.”, the culprit was ordered to wear an ankle monitor. However, the ankle monitor turned out to be broken. If the law 6284 had been implemented efficiently this month, the women would be living now and the children wouldn’t be without their mothers today. 23 of the women who were killed in December had children, one of them was pregnant.


Inasmuch as the law 6284 and Istanbul Agreement were not implemented efficiently in 2019, Emine Bulut(38), who lived in Kırıkkale, was  murdered by her throat  being cut with a sharp object in front of her daughter by Fedai Baran, whom she got divorced 4 years ago. Emine Bulut said “I do not want to die” in the video which was recorded during the murder, which affected people in Turkey deeply. The murderer of Emine Bulut, Fedai Baran, whom she got divorced, said “I stabbed her with a knife which I carried on me because I got angry when she insulted me” in the first statement that he gave. In 2019, it was common that murderers made up excuses to reduce their sentences in law courts. However, no excuses can justify femicides. We repeat our demand that reductions must be confined in femicide cases in order to secure the justice. It was one of the tipping points of women struggle in 2019 that Emine Bulut was killed by the man that she got divorced.



Subsequently, Ayşe Tuğba Arslan in Eskişehir, who had  temporary debarment, was attacked with a chopper on the street in October by Yalçın Ö., whom she used to be married to. Tuğba Arslan, who had struggled for her life for 40 days, died in November. It turned out that Eskişehir prosecution had forced Ayşe Tuğba to compromise with the culprit, she had made a denunciation 23 times in the last two years and she had written “Will you help me when I die?” on the last line of her petition. 


M.A., whom N.A. used to be married to, was taken into custody on a coach whereupon N.A., who lives in Mersin, made a denunciation saying “My husband is coming to kill me.”. A gun, a knife, a plastic handcuff, rope and a box tape were found on M.A. He was arrested for ‘attempted murder’ and ‘firearms law’.



Gülseren Yılmaz(32), who lived in Antalya and had two children, was killed by being stabbed 14 times by Hilmi Yılmaz, whom she wanted to get divorced and got a temporary debarment for.



After Emine Bulut was killed, Hafize K. (23) was stabbed in the throat on the street in front of her daughter(4) by Uğur K., whom she was married to, after she went to law to get divorced.




Güleda Cankel(19), who was a university student and lived in Isparta, was killed by being stabbed in the heart after she was strangled and choked with a cable by Zafer P., who came to Isparta from Muğla to kill her deliberately and she wanted to break up. It was stated that Güleda had struggled for her life for 17 hours and had tried to escape 3 times. It turned out that the culprit had shared a post on social media saying “Live the moment, do not postpone to be happy, you won’t die when you want to.” and he wrote the day he would kill Güleda at the end of the post.



Tuba Erkol(37), who had 3 children and lived in Konya,  filed a complaint against her husband who had used violence against her and she had a temporary debarment from home before she was killed. Tuba Erkol was murdered by being stabbed 20 times in front of her children at home by Bekir Erkol, whom she was married to.



Kabire Atamaz(48), who had 3 children, was found dead in front of her house in Elazığ on August 20th. It turned out that  she was killed by her employer Ömer Cankara, whom she had filed a complaint against repeatedly because he had threatened her with death, and she had demanded to get temporary debarment for him twice.



Fatma Hülya Yıldız(48), who had 2 children and lived in Ankara, got a protection order and temporary debarment and filed for a divorce to leave Mehmet Nevzat Yıldız, whom she was married to and was exposed to violence by. Inasmuch as the law 6284 was not implemented efficiently, Mehmet Nevzat Yıldız, who came to the house despite the protection order and the temporary debarment, choked Fatma Hülya Yıldız with a nylon bag, cut her throat and killed her by battering.


Emine Bulut, Ayşe Tuğba Arslan, Tuba Erkol…Despite the law and the agreements, it came out that women were not protected against violence and they were left alone by authorized institutions. If the law 6284 had been implemented efficiently, the women would live and the children would not be without their mothers today. 155 of the women who were murdered in 2019 had children, 7 of them were pregnant.


Not only do authorized institutions clear the way for the people who have different criminal records or penalities to commit a crime again by liberating them but they also do not protect women by not implementing the law 6284 and Istanbul Agreement. 13 women were killed in 2019 by the men who got probation, escaped from prison, were wanted by the police for more than one crime, got out of prison with permission, released on parole or just released.


Ceren Özdemir, who was a university student, was killed by being stabbed in front of her house in Ordu. The culprit, Özgür Ardıç, who had 12 different criminal records and escaped from the prison twice, confessed that he followed her for a while and he killed her when he had the chance. After Ceren was killed, women gathered in the city squares to protest in Ordu and different cities of Turkey. Süleyman Soylu, the interior minister, said “Criticisms won’t bring her to life back. It does not mean that everyone in Turkey faces with security problems.” after the reactions that weren given for Ceren Özdemir’s murder.



 The Minister of Interior Su?leyman Soylu reffered the reactions after the murder of Ceren O?zdemir as ‘Criticisms will not bring her back. This event does not mean that there is a problem with the national security. At the first court, the perpetrator said ‘If you let me go I will commit a crime again’ and yet the court adjourned to October 20. Elazıg? Psychiatric Hospital reported that O?zgu?r Arduc?, the murderer of Ceren O?zdemir, who claimed he was mentally deranged, had complete criminal license.

What happened about women in 2019?

Las Tesis Protest took place against all obstacles.

Las Tesis performances that started in Chili to protest violence against women took place in many places of Turkey including Grand National Assembly of Turkey, Du?zce, Antalya, Konya, Mersin, I?zmir, I?stanbul, Ankara, Kus?adası, Kaz Mountains and Cyprus despite many police interventions. After the first Las Tesis protest in Istanbul which ended with an attack of the police to the participants and several prone handcuffing, there had been a spreading of support messages from all around the country. We have seen acquitalls and efforts of exculpation of the ones who murder women, commit domestic violence and abuse children in 2019, like we also have in past years. We have witnessed the effort to cover the suspicious murders but we have not surrendered. The police attacked those who were protesting to provide gender equality, stop femicide, violence against women and child abuse, and the protesters got detained with prone handcuffs. Women responded to these attacks both on the streets and social media by using the hashtag #StopMurderersNotWomen. Aside from the authorities who are not applying the law, us, women, who have been working to enter the laws into the force, have seen that those responsible of violence could not even protect us from the violence of the police. We are against all sorts of violence and continue our rising. The movement spreading by the Turkish version of Las Tesis has reached too many and it will continue reaching the society.


After the homicide of Emine Bulut in September, the Ministry of Justice Abdu?lhamit Gu?l has stated ‘we can change the law if necessary.’ We have also emphasized the importance of the Istanbul Convention and article 6284 by our monthly reporting in order to make all the related authorities to apply the law, as we do each month. The Ministry has published a circular letter about the article 6284, as a result of the criticisms and protests they have received after the police attack on Las Tesis performers. This circular letter is a relatively late victory of the women who have been rising for years to

put the law into force. However, publication of the circular was not enough. Our rise will continue to make sure every article of the law is well-applied. The circular, as a victory of our movement, has many gaps and includes a ‘privacy’ regulation for social media posts. We will not be silent just like we have not been so far, so that there will be no further S?ule C?et, Aysun Yıldırım or Rabia Naz cases.

man she wished to divorce but did not extend the duration after the pull date.


The women removed their hijabs has gone viral on social media with the hashtag #10yearschallange as a symbol of freedom. Women who still wear hijabs also emphasized their freedom as well. During the first month of 2019, women showed they are not willing to go under any pressure and act by their own choices with the ‘Don’t Interfere My Clothes’ saying.

Another anti-feminist statement came from Yekta Sarac? the headmaster of YOK. He has announced gender equality as ‘not fitted with our cultural norms and is not accepted by our society.’ and had the intentions of updating the protocol by removing gender equality notion. Even though the update has not been done yet, the notion of ‘gender equality’ is treated as a forbidden word. The first thing done by the Ministry of

Education was to remove gender equality from the curriculum at the beginning of the 2019-2020 education year.
President Recep Tayyip Erdogan asked a woman victim of EYT ‘What is your husband doing?’ after she said she could not find a job.

However, the misogynist policies of the government still continues. The workshop on alimony of TUBI?TAKKOM has resulted and the final report has been published.

We will stop femicide!”. On 25th November, the march in Taksim was attempted to be banned but the ban was lifted by the struggle of women. Police attacked activist women who were meeting on the Taksim Tünel Square, however they carried out the protests despite all obstacles.


Due to November 25 in 2019, Minister of Internal Affairs Süleyman Soylu announced the numbers of femicide at the “Monitoring Committee on Violence Against Women” together with the Ministry of Family, Labor and Social Services Zehra Zümrüt Selçuk and Minister of Justice Abdulhamit Gül. According to the numbers announced, 304 women in 2016, 353 women in 2017, 280 women in 2018 and 299 in 2019 were killed in Turkey.


According to the report published in December by Gendarmerie and Cost Guard Academy Research Centers Directorate, 83 women in 2008, 56 women in 2009, 68 in 2010, 62 in 2011, 50 in 2012, 57 in 2013, 57 in 2014, 90 in 2015, 57 in 2016 and 62 women in 2017 were killed in the Gendarmerie controlled areas that constitute 92% of Turkey’s land surface and 14% of the population.


With the parliamentary question of CHP Deputy Ömer Fethi Gürer, Ministry of Internal Affairs admitted they could not protect women. As the data of the ministry indicates, 94 women under legal protection were killed in the last 5 years. 1890 women were killed in 1.015.337 different incidents of violence towards women. Again, as the data of the ministry states, the ministry accepted the increase in the rates of violence against women incidents since 2014.


According to our data collected only from media and information delivered from families, 328 women in 2016, 409 women in 2017, 440 women in 2018 and 474 women in 2019 were killed. We summon every month for publication of data. For the first time Ministry of Internal Affairs published data and acknowledging this phenomenon by using the term “femicide” last year. This year, again for the first time, Ministry of Internal Affairs with Ministry of Family, Labor and Social Services, Ministry of Justice and Gendarmerie and Cost Guard Academy Research Centers Directorate published data about femicide and verified the increase in femicide and violence against women. In this case, we, women are expecting the following: Sincerity in the statements of those who say that there should be no tolerance for violence against women and to effectively enforce the law 6284 and Istanbul Agreement to stop the increase of violence and femicide. The protection law of 6284 published in December should aim to stop gender-based violence, instead of preventing women’s struggle or digesting the movement by oppression. Violence against women and femicide cannot be reduced by hiding it. This year, the community reacts more to the increase of violence and femicide. We have seen this reaction when Münevver Karabulut, Özgecan Aslan and Emine Bulut were killed. Femicide became a phenomenon not just encapsulates individuals affected by the incident but the whole society itself, now, women are screaming “I don’t want to die!”.  It is a great misstep to suppress this reaction with violence, gender-based violence and femicide that brings this reaction should be intervened urgently. 440 women last year and 474 women were killed this year. You should not let these numbers escalate because of the laws that are not enforced properly. What should be done is quite obvious: We say it again and we will continue to say until the laws are enforced: The Protection Law 6284 and Istanbul Agreement should be implemented effectively by all authorized institutions and organizations.
