    7. 7. Suggestions to the floor  The education of women, especially in rural areas, is essential to improve their possibilities to participate in the labour market and to take part in local administrations as well as local initiatives.  We need for a comprehensive women's employment policy in Turkey and the elaboration of a National Employment Strategy based on cooperation with the social partners and other relevant civil society organisations,  The media have a great outreach and can affect great masses within a short period of time. Media have a big influence on society’s behavioural patterns, values and norms.
    8. 8. Concluding Remarks  Turkish accession to the EU would prove our ability to overcome divisions of any kind and build a political and economic union based on diversity and on common values such as peace, democracy, social justice, gender equality and respect for human rights.   This is the reason why we must constantly rethink together policies where women's roles are often neglected and also further develop policies to address the problems. I am sure that Turkish women and NGOs can decisively contribute to this endeavour.
