  1. Super lady and I hope she goes further in politics...though it will be hard for her with the language problem.
    Thanks for posting it.

  2. Fly: She strikes me as a pretty determined woman who will overcome the language and any other problems that get in her way.

  3. She sounds like a pretty amazing person. She reminds me of Vandana Shiva, whom I greatly admire, another incredible women that has had a huge influence in India and throughout the world.

  4. Mr H: Yes certainly some similarities...Would have been wonderful if Fatma had had a similar education to that of Vandana...what a huge difference that would have made.

  5. great, but I wonder how people in England would react if someone who don`t know English run for mayor.

  6. Hi Eren: welcome! I suppose the difference is that the people in Fatma's area all speak the same language as her. That probably wouldn't be the case in England I imagine.
