        Ataturk | Wide Angle

        Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, the founder of modern Turkey, implemented sweeping reforms, including laws on religious attire, to give women more freedom and help realize his vision of a secular nation-state. The strong secular tradition established by Ataturk still holds firm today, but in recent years the republic has been experiencing revival of Islamic fundamentalism. Mustafa Karaduman, CEO of an Islamic-style clothing chain, hopes to contribute to the resurgence of Islam by dressing more Turkish women in traditional, but more fashionable, clothing. In this segment from the Wide Angle film "Turkey's Tigers," learn more about Karaduman and how Turkey’s laws have imposed restrictions on on how Muslim women are allowed to dress.
