Live and on National Turkish Television!

 On September 17th Betty Martins was invited to speak about the documentary “I wasn’t always dressed like this” live on Turkish National Television. The talk/debate lasted about 30 minutes, and it was a wonderful opportunity to speak specially on women’s rights in a country where the veil has been throughout history used as political instrument.

Betty Martins recent interview to LABKULTUR

“I think integration stands for people engaging in everyday life, it is certainly not about unifying communities. We don’t want homogenous groups, we want people standing with their own individualities and being respected for that. That individual respect is the basis for truth integration. That is what democracy is about anyway. You have to be careful with that “unity” idea quite often misunderstood and quite often used to justify certain political decisions and public debates that have in truth nationalist ends.”

Betty Martins was recently interviewed by German cultural magazine LABKULTUR (journalist Boris Alexander Knop) about the production and distribution phase of the documentary “I wasn’t always dressed like this” while discussing issues around cultural identity affairs, the idea of integration and implemented social policies in Europe.
