She did so as a prominent feminist scholar in the fi elds of political science and history and as a leading activist of the “second-wave” feminist movement in the 1980s, a historical epoch in terms of the revival of feminism in Turkey. Tekeli’s contri- butions can be classifi ed under two main themes: her earlier works on women’s politi- cal participation in Turkey were the fi rst that incorporated a gender perspective in the scholarship; second, for the Kemalist modernization project and reforms of the early republican period, she proposed to use the term “state feminism.” Trained as a polit- ical scientist, Tekeli submitt ed her habilitation on women’s participation in politics in 1978, when she was an assistant professor at the University of Istanbul.
