This year we will celebrated the International Women’s Day with a movie screening written and directed by a Turkish woman Ümmiye KOÇAK. Ümmiye KOÇAK who is an accomplished writer despite the fact that she did not get a proper school education received the Best Eurasian Artist Award for her acting role in the film at the Eurasian Film Festival in New York. She says the movie is based on a true story and deals with the violence against women. She also points out that violence usually comes from a man who is raised by a woman so the education of a woman is more important.
All proceeds benefits BTF Empowerment Education Scholarships for economically disadvantaged girls in rural Turkey. If you have not already done so, you can still donate at BTF Michigan Giving Circle
After the Saturday screening TACAM presented this year’s Most Courageous Woman Award to our beloved member and all time friend Gülser Gürocak.
