Thank You, Deeply

Dear Women & Girls Community,

We are excited to share our plans for the future of women and girls’ coverage at News Deeply.

In January 2018, our Women & Girls page will close as we launch the first of a new set of dedicated platforms that will allow us to dive deeper into the biggest issues affecting women and girls in the developing world.

This first platform – Women’s Advancement Deeply – will cover the pursuit of economic equality for women, from securing gender-equal access to financial services, to fighting for property rights and closing the pay gap.

We’ll also be working to launch other dedicated platforms in this space, and we are currently exploring themes of maternal, sexual and reproductive health, as well as gender-based violence. If these topics are of interest to you, please let us know here – we would love your input as we shape new initiatives.

Our trove of existing Women & Girls coverage will remain available through an archived version of the site, allowing you to explore and reference our published articles dating back to May 2016

Thank you for being part of the Women & Girls community. We look forward to having you join us in our new endeavors in this space.

Turkey’s transgender community is dealing with increasing threats of violence as the country moves in a more conservative direction. With 95% of transgender women in sex work, many are risking their lives on a nightly basis to earn enough money to survive. Last year, prominent LGBT activist Hande Kader was murdered. News Deeply spent an evening with Kader’s friend and fellow sex worker Cansel to find out the difficulties Turkey’s trans community faces in this film by Didem Tali.
