Abstract
Turkey’s ruling Justice and Development Party, AKP, has been using women’s body in implementing social and economic policies since they came into power in 2002. Male rooted political power within the party has been creating regulations concerning sex and reproduction. This paper aims to explain women’s involvement in the Gezi Park as a reaction to political intervention with and endogenous control over women’s bodies.
