Abstract


WOMEN IN URBAN POLITICS: ASSESSMENT IN MUNICIPAL COUNCILS OF ZONGULDAK DISTRICTS

Cities are one of the areas where we can see the participatory democratic elements of the contemporary social structure most easily. It can be regarded as a requirement of democracy to have information, to express opinions, to make opinions and suggestions on issues related to the urban agenda. Women make up a significant portion of the population. However, they cannot participate sufficiently in the political and social process. In our country, women's rights to be elected politically or to vote are at the forefront in the world. However, their presence in decision-making mechanisms could not reach the desired level. This study examines women's participation in local politics. After the conceptual analysis of urban politics, the presence of women in municipal councils is discussed. The number of female members in the municipal councils of Zonguldak and its districts was examined. Gender equality is an extremely important issue that is among the sustainable development goals. The existence of women's voice in the planning and implementation processes of public services is a factor that will strengthen gender equality. There may be aspects in which a feminine perspective can be effective in increasing the sustainability and quality of life in cities. Therefore, addressing the issue of increasing the presence of women in municipal councils will shed light on the inclusive local government model that reduces inequalities.
