SES Equality, Justice, Women Platform
SES Equality, Justice, Women Platform is a digital media organization that brings together local and international news and content related to gender equality, women’s pursuit of rights and justice, women’s leadership in all fields, and women’s representation in politics, business, and the arts. Since 2018, the Platform has been committed to highlighting news and individuals that promote hope, courage, and an egalitarian vision for the future, advocating for inclusive and constructive journalism that avoids the trap of discrimination and promotes a new language supporting peace. The Platform captures and evaluates current events from a woman’s perspective through translations, interviews, discussions, news articles, and compilations. It also serves as an archive of recent history for the women’s movement in Turkey and the world. In addition to publishing in Turkish, the platform also operates in English, serving as a bridge and news channel between the women’s movement and activists in Turkey and around the world. Through its website, its weekly Turkish and English newsletters and its active social media accounts such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, Spotify, and LinkedIn, the Platform reaches a local and global audience of thousands, including activists, politicians, academics, representatives of NGOs, journalists, international organizations, embassies, UN delegations, and members of EU institutions.

I find the SES e-bulletin an essential source of news on gender equality activism and policy developments in Europe and the Middle East.” Pat Mitchell Journalist and TEDWomen Curator “The SES Equality, Justice, and Women Platform and the SES Women’s Voices bulletin have been a vital resource for me. They serve as a source of understanding for women’s rights advocates worldwide. It provides concise news and information about developments that impact women’s lives, gathered from various parts of the world. It would be wonderful if it could be expanded to provide more in-depth and comprehensive coverage, reaching even more women. The inclusion of news about women from different regions is both educational and inspiring. Kudos to all those involved in its creation.” Prof. Dr. Serpil Sancar
