Neighbors complain about woman for ‘wearing shorts at her home’ in Turkish capital
ANKARALocals in the Kolej neighborhood of the capital Ankara have reportedly filed a complaint about a woman for “wearing shorts.”
Neighbors reportedly complained to the manager of the apartment building where the woman lives, demanding that she keep her curtains closed as she was “wearing shorts in her home.”
The woman, an English teacher identified only by the initials T.E., said she had been “monitored” by her neighbors and workers at the construction site across from her apartment for a long time and had been abused through her social media accounts.
“I am constantly being monitored and abused at my house near Kızılay, where I have been living for around a year, by workers at the front, people living in the apartment building nearby, and by the son of my neighbor,” T.E wrote on her social media account on Sept. 6.
“Now those who monitor my home because I wear shorts have complained about me to the building manager. The manager has warned me to keep my curtains closed for my own sake,” she added.
