There have been many legal attempts to improve women's position, but these are not sufficient to realize societal changes. One of the most important solutions to the problem of gender inequality is women empowerment. It is possible to measure women empowerment on the basis of gender role attitudes of women and controlling behaviors of husbands. This thesis tries to explain women empowerment on the basis of these two important indicators stated above. 2008 Turkish Demographic and Health Survey data was used for this purpose, and education and wealth were found as the most important determinants of women empowerment. Considering wealth can be increased through education, it is beneficial and necessary for countries and governments to give priority to education in order to protect women and empower them in family relations.
