Like a Bird in a Cage

A film by Guliz Saglam (Turkey/2009/29:51).

This film documents the female worker resistance of several women in Turkey. Emine Arslan is fired from the Desa Sefaköy factory for her protest and several female workers are fired from the Düzce factory. All the women who were fired are union members. The documentary explores their working conditions, the experience they gain while organizing, the advantages of resistance, and their relationship with the union. The Istanbul Women’s Platform stands with them throughout the resistance strike.
