Meltem Arikan

Meltem Arikan has been an author, journalist and playwright in Turkey, to great critical acclaim. Newsweek quoted her as saying ‘I write more about facts, things we don’t like to see, subjects that we avoid talking about, that we try to cover up. I have a problem when it comes to women’s existences. If women didn’t exist as women, you men couldn’t exist at all. My biggest dream is a world where men and women exercise their natural sexual identities, accepting their differences and therefore appreciating the richness and harmony between these differences and enjoy all the true aspects of their lives.’
