Abstract


GENDER IN TURKISH PROVERBS

Since the early twentieth century, with the birth of feminism, gender studies have been examined in a variety of disciplines of knowledge. A special emphasis has been placed on gender and language, as well as the abundance of female-biased and paucity of male-biased expressions. The article analyzes the representations of men and women portrayed in Turkish proverbs. The aim of this study is to determine whether proverbs are gendered and convey male ideologies and world views. This paper also seeks to demonstrate the deep discursive and intercultural connections between the ways proverbs reflect women's roles and status in Turkey. With this purpose, gender-based proverbs were chosen and the semantic research was performed. This paper claims that language is used to support gender inequities systematically. Ömer Asım Aksoy's Dictionary of Proverbs and Idioms was used in the selection of proverbs that are the source of this study, and the proverbs related to men and women in this dictionary were examined.
