Women do not have equal rights to pray in either the Orthodox Islamic or the Orthodox Jewish centres in Jerusalem and Diyarbakir.
April 4th, 2003, Diyarbakir, Turkey. In the photo above taken by me, a woman begs outside the great Ulu Mosque in eastern Turkey. Eastern Turkey is more religious than the more secular west, hence the gap between men’s and women’s rights and privileges is more pronounced. Women are not permitted to pray in the main mosque.
