30 March 2021: A female MP from the Justice and Development Party stated that men are not the only ones at fault concerning the issue of male violence in Turkey and that women also contribute to the problem. Earlier in the month she declared that many more men get killed in Turkey than women, and that the media tends to exaggerate and focus too much on femicides and violence against women.
