Kristal Elma Festival’s topic was societal gender equality. Semerci, who attended the panel at the 5th of October, which was moderated by Ayşe Arman, told that societal teachings cause this inequality between genders, but with consciousness-raising the gap could be closed. Semerci, who told girls and boys get separated by their job orientations while they grow up, said even so girls count more in top 10 graduation numbers. She said that this isn’t just women’s responsibility but a problem of humanity, thus, males are equally responsible.
