Tensions between men and women

"some 34 percent of people in Turkey perceive high levels of tensions between men and women a level which is substantially greater than that found in the new EU member states (8 percent) an in the EU 15 (12 percent)."

"Moreover, the figure for Turkey masks an interesting gender gap: some 42 percent of women in Turkey consider that there is a lot of tension between the sexes, compared with 25 percent of Turkish men. In contrast, little or no gender gap emerges in the EU member states." (p. 46)
