Gider started the attacks shortly after Yildirim’s husband left town for a seasonal job in January of 2012.
Yildirim says that Gider raped her, impregnated her and then, snuck into her home while she was sleeping and photographed her. The pictures revealed a pregnant body and Gider threatened to publish the pictures if she didn’t obey him.
“I chased him,” she said. “He fell on the ground. He started cussing. I shot his sexual organ this time. He became quiet. I knew he was dead. I then cut his head off.”
She brought the head to the town square and in front of men sitting at a coffee House, she said, “Don’t talk behind my back, don’t play with my honor. Here is the head of the man who played with my honor.”
She was arrested and is in jail. Read an interview with her HERE.
This is a tragic example of what happens when women are not protected under the law. America is light years ahead of Turkey but we are witnessing an unprecedented attack on women’s rights in the U.S., from the thousands of bills looking to restrict or ban abortions to the attempt to make contraception unavailable. When you attack women, they fight back and women don’t mess around.
