According to the Turkish Justice Ministry, the rate of women murdered in that country has jumped 1400% between 2002 and 2009.  This is part of a larger pattern of violence against women.  Honor killings, where women and girls are killed to protect the family's perceived "honor," continue to be a problem.  During the relatively brief time that this blog has been online, I've noticed a surprising amount of pornography posted to Facebook by Turkish users.  Most of it involves adults, but some of it clearly does not.
