Makale özeti ve diğer detaylar.
In this article, I shall present the following issues: First, the development during the 1970s against a highly politicized background, when the anti-feminist, socialist ideology hindered a free development of an independent feminist discourse. Second, the development during the 1980s against the background of the Coup of September 1980, when the development of a feminist discourse was stripped of its political environment. Third, the general biographical background of the Turkish women writers, and the major conflicts and contradictions these women experienced due to their background, including an enumeration of the main issues. Based on this analysis, the development of 'feminist literature' during the 1970s is described against the background of political polarization and the context of the 'politicized female intellectual'. The development of 'feminist literature' during the 1980s is presented against the background of the Coup of 1980 and four highly dynamic forces in the context of the 'individual women' and the 'turn towards the self'.
