In Mersin province of Turkey, a 20 year old university student Özgecan Aslan was killed barbarously two days ago.
The murderer was a minibus driver and tried to rape young girl. Just because the girl resisted him, the murderer stabbed her for many times and then hit her head by a metal.
In order not to leave any proof he cut her both hands and burned her body. The police caught the murderer and two other men who have helped him after the murder. Upon this really tragic event, many people in Turkey protested in different cities. We as the leading literature news website in Turkey, asked comments of Turkish women writers about this event.
