As she did most afternoons, Pinar Unluer was waiting to collect her six-year-old son from his school in Turkey’s Aegean city of Izmir. She was then shot dead in broad daylight only metres away from the school, by a man whose marriage proposal she had rejected. The 29-year-old was among 210 Turkish women killed or forced to commit suicide in 2012 in misogynist attacks by men, according to the women’s rights group We Will Stop Femicide. Since then there has been a chilling increase in the number of women killed, often at the hands of men they know.
