Abstract

The right of entering to public job was secured by the constitution. But the condition of uncovering was imposed at every stage of recruitment in the public sector. The ban had a spillover effect and influenced the practices in the private sector. The headscarf was not a political symbol and covered women did not cover due to the pressure from their families. On the other hand it was not only the problem of covered women but of society. As it was well established, there was not any need to reach a compromise to be able to get the basic rights and freedom. It seemed that society as well political parties realized these facts and at the end the problem that caused a lot of tension and human rights violations in the country.
