The shooting of Mutlu Kaya, who spent weeks in a coma after the incident, rapidly became a symbol of violence against women in Turkey, particularly in the Kurdish-dominated southeast.The Kurdish-majority southeast of Turkey is known for its strongly conservative values, with women expected to perform a traditional role.The attack on Kaya came at a time of intensifying anger in Turkey over the extent of violence against women, with hundreds of wives killed by their husbands every year.According to the non-governmental Platform to Stop Violence Against Women, 290 women were murdered in Turkey in 2015 and 103 so far this year.
