To mark the occasion of International Women's Day 2019, the European Union Delegation to Turkey has prepared an illustration series about Turkish women who pioneered on their professions, and also in the society to reaffirm the EU's commitment to gender equality. The EU Delegation to Turkey chose to bring to the fore a number of women pioneers, some of them not widely known, who led the way for their peers, and generations to come.

The exhibition opening was held on 2nd of March, Saturday in Polish Embassy’s premises in Ankara. The Head of the European Union Delegation, Ambassador Christian Berger gave a speech to reaffirm the EU's commitment to gender equality; "Equality between women and men is one of the fundamental values of the European Union. We want girls and women to achieve equality in all aspects of life; access to education, equal pay for equal work, access to top positions in companies and politics as well as protection from violence.”
