The Green Left Party made a statement criticizing the “priority wagon for women” application launched in Bursa Provincial organization Bursaray.
Spouse for the Provincial Organization sözcüIn the statement made with the signatures of F. Özen Çerençe and A. Serdar Esen, the application was asked to be removed immediately and it was stated that “Neither women are second class citizens nor men are completely harassers”.
The whole explanation is:
“The intensity experienced in Bursaray recently brought Bursa residents to the point of rebellion. Especially those who had to travel in the “fish hoard” in the morning and evening hours, in addition to this, increased the reaction to Burulaş with the occasional failures.
Yesterday we learned that a new application has started in Bursaray. While waiting for the number of trips or wagons to increase and the air conditioners to work regularly, the news we received caused anger not only in our country but in the majority of the people of Bursa. Burulaş company, which is affiliated with Bursa Metropolitan Municipality, has started the application of “priority wagon for female passengers” in the metro. It was stated that the application, which was first launched at Otosansit station, will be implemented in forty stations in the coming days.
Burulaş officials from the request of the citizens of the application was launched on the latest wagon, women will be given priority, but the men could travel in these wagons.
The people of Bursa want to travel in better conditions and more affordable prices. Increasing the number of flights and wagons to be done for this purpose, transportation prices to a reasonable level, women's isolation is not!
This practice of burulas includes discrimination and humiliation for both women and men. The practice, which sees women as “weak” and “to be protected” second-class assets, qualifies men as “harassers”. In addition, although there is no gender called "woman", it is also noteworthy that the word "woman" is used instead of woman.
As the Green Left Party, we perceive this practice as an indicator of “gender inequality” and we want it removed immediately. Neither women are second-class citizens, nor men are completely abusive.
