Scarf conundrum grips Turkey
BBC News – Feb 25, 2004
It’s a separation which many here in Turkey are keen to show the world. They want to present a country which is secular modern and Western. It was an image captured perfectly in last year’s Turkish winning entry in the Eurovision song contest. Sparsely-clad Sertab Erener’s song “Every Way That I Can” fused Eastern rhythms and hip-hop and became the country’s first-ever winner. But that image does not reflect the whole of Turkey. In fact it is estimated that as many as 65% of Turkish women cover their heads with a scarf. But women wearing headscarves are not allowed to enter state-controlled areas such as schools universities or government offices.
