Summary This book aims to analyze and deconstruct the forms of patriarchy embedded in Turkish society and politics. In this regard, it analyses how patriarchy functions and reconstructs itself by suppressing women and non heterosexuals. It also reveals its effects on women and non-heterosexuals through some societal and political issues such as military interventions, the perceptions on transsexuals by the state and society, juvenile penal justice, and policies on environment.
