Summary:The image of woman presented in the first collection of tales by Turkish writer Erendiz Atasü, entitled Kadınlar da Vardır (Women Also Exist), is typical of a traditional patriarchal society: that of mother and humble housewife, bound to the home to keep order in this private space. This article will give an overview of the creation and development of feminism(s) through time, including the necessity from which it/they were created, along with responses from famous feminist theoreticians throughout history. Some of the important topics in this research that relate directly to female characters presented in the short stories “One Right, One Wrong”, “Women Also Exist”, “The Time of Socializing on the Balcony” and “The Quiet Ali”, are problems that women have struggled with in order to be in the position they occupy today. A connection and similarity between women’s issues and feminism is established, in terms of the feminism(s) occurring in America, Japan, Egypt, Turkey and other countries in which women fight for their rights. Special emphasis is placed on the discrimination and oppression of women, and their exclusion from the public sphere, as well as their role of the Other, which is assigned from birth.
