Turkey women share harassment stories after grim murder

Turkish women and activists have taken to the streets in nationwide protests, and started a wildly-successful Twitter campaign, after the murder of a 20-year-old student in an alleged attempted rape.

Thousands of women rallied across the country over the weekend, while many people participated in a campaign supported by local celebrities encouraging Turkish people to dress in black on Monday.

A separate online campaign has gone viral when women in Turkey took to Twitter to share their personal experiences of harassment and abuse using the #sendeanlat (#tellyourstory) hashtag.
