Atatürk(1881 - 1938)

The history of modern Turkey begins with the foundation of the republic on October 29, 1923, with Mustafa Kemal (Atatürk) as its first president. The government was formed from the Ankara-based revolutionary group, led by Atatürk. The second constitution was ratified by the Grand National Assembly of Turkey on April 20, 1924. For about the next 10 years, the country saw a steady process of secular Westernization through Atatürk's Reforms, which included the unification of education; the discontinuation of religious and other titles; the closure of Islamic courts and the replacement of Islamic canon law with a secular civil code modeled after Switzerland's and a penal code modeled after the Italian Penal Code; recognition of the equality between the sexes and the granting of full political rights to women on 5 December 1934; the language reform initiated by the newly founded Turkish Language Association; replacement of the Ottoman Turkish alphabet with the new Turkish alphabet derived from the Latin alphabet; the dress law (the wearing of a fez, a traditional Muslim hat, is outlawed); the law on family names; and many others
[However, the first party to be established in the newly formed republic was Women's Party (Kadınlar Halk Fırkası). It was founded by Nezihe Muhiddin and several other women but was stopped from its activities, since during the time women were not yet legally allowed to engage in politics. The actual passage to multi-party period was first attempted with the Liberal Republican Party by Ali Fethi Okyar. However, the Liberal Party was dissolved on 1 November 1930 and no further attempt for a multi-party democracy was made until 1945. Turkey was admitted to the League of Nations in July 1932

I think out of every country, Turkey is the least known in terms of history and culture. Everyone it seems just loves tossing it in with the middle east society.

I been to Turkey 6 times, it is a great place to visit.

I am sort of an Ottoman history nut, I love reading about the Ottomans and the Byzantines.

I do not see how Turkey is invovled with the Armenian genocide.

The genocide happened under the Ottoman Empire, the turks overthrew the sultan and established a new republic and even moved its capital.

I do not see how the Turkish government, which was formed after the genocide, should or is accountable for the actions of the Ottomans.
