Following a recent trip to Uludere, Emine Erdoğan also attended the Küçükçekmece Municipality's opening of an 'Information House' in the Söğütlüçeşme neighborhood. Municipalities have been setting up 'Information Houses' throughout Turkey which are intended to act similarly to a library geared towards middle and high school students, who can use computers, books and other sources available as well as attend seminars, tutoring and exam preparation courses.
Speaking at the opening, Erdoğan stated, "Any sort of violence directed towards women, children or family members will from here on out, be heavily punished. Women subjected to violence will be taken under protective care by the state. I believe that with this revolutionary new legislation, which will completely provide for violence victim's needs, these inhumane actions directed towards our sisters will become a part of the past. I want to especially request that all women learn of the rights they have acquired with this new legislation and realize that they are no longer helpless and to from here on out say no to violence."
Erdoğan drew reference upon her recent trip to Uludere, by stating, "The solidarity of 75 million, will I believe, even if to just some extent, ease the pain and suffering."
During her address, Erdoğan emphasized that it is not right to keep children sheltered at home and instead they should be spending quality time in the municipality's 'Information Houses'.
