The board members of the Turkish Union, the members of other Soroptimist Clubs and the scholars were present for a moment of silence in the presence of our Atatürk’s mausoleum Anıtkabir on November 4, 2023, on the 100th anniversary of Republic of Türkiye, to commemorate our Founding Leader Mustafa Kemal Atatürk who with his thoughts far ahead of its time, ensured a new era to Turkish women by revolutions which improved the status of women. President Nazlı Yolaç and three of our scholars fulfilled this honorable duty.

Two different cultural events were organized for our scholars on the same day;

We visited the “Republic Museum”, which was used as the Turkish Grand National Assembly building for approximately 40 years, dated back to the founding of the Republic of Türkiye. It was a visit where we were informed with the feeling of an atmosphere of those years.

We visited Turkish Union’s Başkent Community Education Center which is located at Ankara Castle, a historical region, and saw the portrait of Atatürk, consisting of 17 thousand small mosaic stones, designed to draw attention to the revolutions and achievements made since the declaration of the Republic.
