Şahin also stated that violence against women in Turkey is not on the rise, it's just that because it is no longer "swept under the carpet like it was before" it may appear to be on the rise. Şahin went on to state, "In the first 11 months of 2012, 56 women and 55 men were killed as a result of violence." Şahin also pointed out that 29,000 men have been restrained from their homes as a result of the ministry's campaigns against domestic violence.
The Ministry's budget was approved by the commission.
