This periodical has first been published in Aug. 1975 and ceased publication in Aug. 1980. It was closed down by the military just before the coup d’état in 1980. Similar periodicals with a Marxist approach have been published in those years. Kadinlarin Sesi is the biggest monthly periodical which reached up to 60 issues and a circulation of 30 thousand copies. It reflects the ideology of an era in which the issue of women’s emancipation was focused only in terms of class paradigm.
