Muslin Women in Highly Industrialized Societies: The Case of Turkish Women in the FRG

  • Hatice Özerturgut-Yurtdas

Abstract

20 years ago, I was recruited as a “Gastarbeiterin” for Germany, after having undergone a severe medical test. And so were many other Turkish women in their most productive age, i.e. between 20 and 35 years. Because the industry preferred to employ female labour, a huge number of married women left their families behind in Turkey. Today, about half a million of Turkish women are living in the FRG. The first generation consists of the pioneers (the women directly recruited) and of the wives of guestworkers who came in the course of a program of family reunion, before and especially after the recruiting of Turkish workers was stopped.
