The first issue of this volume begins with the study of Zeliha Damka and Sennur Tutarel Kislak which analyzes whether the scores of the post traumatic stress disorder, trauma-related guilt and other psychological symptoms changes with respect to the suicide attempts of women staying in shelters and the type of violence that they experience.

The last article of the first issue by Filiz Kardam and Ilknur Yuksel-Kaptanoglu argues violence against women in Turkey within the framework of Connell's 'hegemonic masculinity'.

The book is titled European Musicians of Ottoman, written by Evren Kutlay-Baydar. The book review of the second issue by Ipek Halim provides a useful summary of a multidisciplinary book titled Cins Cins Mekan on gender and place edited by Ay ten Alkan.
