Providing specific information from Turkey about women’s mental health and human rights, Sahika Yüksel, Dilek Cindoglu, and Ufuk Sezgin discuss the social regulation, coercion, and control of women’s sexualities (including non-mainstream sexualities), physical and sexual violence against women and consequent trauma-related disorders, and the rights-related context for and implications of these violations. They consider sexual abuse, partner and marital rape, date rape, and honour killings as internationally neglected crimes and human rights violations. The authors also tackle rights and mental health issues associated with sexual violence in war, sexual torture, sexual trafficking, and sexual health STDs. They foreshadow the need for substantial operational and legal measures to be undertaken through national and supra-national bodies to address some of these problems.
