20-year-old university student Ozgecan Aslan was murdered whilst trying to resist a rape attempt by a minibus driver on February 11. Two days later her burnt body was found in a creek.

It’s a case that has shaken Turkey to its core, and resulted in public protests and heated debates about the treatment and rights of women in the country.

And now the men of neighbouring Azerbaijan have taken to social media to show their solidarity with the women of the region.

Using the hashtag #ozgecanicinminietekgiy which translates as ‘wear miniskirts for Ozgecan’, men have been posting pictures of themselves in the supposedly provocative item.

According to BBC Trending, the campaign’s Facebook page states: ‘If a miniskirt is responsible for everything, if [wearing] a miniskirt means immorality and unchastity, if a woman who wears a miniskirt is sending an invitation about what will happen to her, then we are also sending an invitation!’

Since then a second hashtag #EteğiniGiyTaksimeGel – which translates as ‘Come to Taksim square wearing a skirt’ – calls men to show their solidarity at Taksim Square in Istanbul.
