This book is about the Business Against Domestic Violence (BADV) project, which has been initiated and coordinated by the Corporate Governance Forum of Turkey (CGFT) - a research center at Sabancı University’s School of Management, as a participatory action research project. The Project is aimed at exploring business agency in achieving gender equality through playing a catalytic role in mobilizing companies and business associations against IPV in Turkey in collaboration with the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) and the Turkish Industry and Business Association (TÜSİAD). Turkey represents an ideal setting for observing the role of business in achieving gender equality, as it has the highest gender gap amongst G-20 states following Saudi Arabia (WEF, 2018), the lowest labor force participation by women amongst all OECD countries (OECD, 2018), and a persistently high record of gender-based violence.
