Cumhuriyet idaresinin ilk yılları, 1923’te nüfus sayımında kadınlarında sayılması, 1924 seçme ve seçilme hakları reddedilmişti. Atatürk çok istese de bu yıllarda, Türkiye Büyük Millet Meclisi’nin kabul etmediği kadın haklarının zamanlamasının, o ilk yıllar için çok da uygun olmadığını gördü.
2 yılı daha bekliyecekti.”

INVITE: “IN A GENTLE WAY, YOU CAN SHAKE THE WORLD” MAHATMA GANDHI ~ THE MAN OF MILLENNIUM

“In a Gentle Way You Can Shake the World” was deliberately chosen as a sub-title. It refers to his historical backdrop along with Gandhi’s belief in humanity at large, which applies even very much in present and future times to achieve global sustainable culture of peace in a “Gentle Way” yet “can shake the world” and change in a positive direction.  150 years have passed since his birth and 61 years since his assassination, yet world’s conditions, conflicts and wars are much harsher and tragic now than Gandhi’s lifetime or 20th century at large. Gandhi believed in inner peace, global peace and unity for all.
