I would like to thank the Mayor of Milas for his sensitivity to the issue.”

Speaking at the meeting, Milas Mayor Muhammet Tokat emphasized that intense efforts should be made to end violence against women.

After the other speakers completed their presentations, the shopkeepers of Güllük were visited. During the visit, stickers with the words "We Closed Our Neighborhood to Violence" were stuck on the windows of shops and businesses.
