The Panel on Women Playwrights of Turkish Theatre investigates the influence of women playwrights in Turkish Theatre through researching their work, starting from the Ottoman Period to the Republic Period, and from the Republic Period to the present day. The panel will examine the gradual transformation from the male-dominated social structure of The Ottoman Empire to the approach of a modernised structure based on equality, how women playwrigts started to become more visible as a result of this transformation, the women's studies engaged in revealing this visibility, and what topics women playwrights have chosen to discuss in their plays from these periods of transformation to the present day.
