What do you expect from an ISIS-supporting country?

Erdogan is the 'western-friendly' face of ISIS.

Sillier and further from the truth that usual. Turkey, and I'm sure that Erdogan had words in it, is actually launching air strikes against ISIS alongside USA, UK, UAE, Australia, France and various other countries. Are you suggesting that they are all ISIS supporters or just embarrassed that Greece and Cyprus are doing nothing to defeat ISIS although they are taking in some refugees (Turkey has accepted about 2 million).

Turkey: Universal women's suffrage 1934. First women elected to National Assembly 1935 - and there were 18 of them!
Greece: Universal women's suffrage 1952. First woman elected to National Assembly 1953.

It would be fairly easy to scan the net and find cases of men mistreating women in Greece or probably any other country. Try not to be so narrow minded.

I don't think anyone believes such nonsense any more.

Turkey has been supporting ISIS in order to destroy Syria for years now. Why should Cyprus and Greece, themselves victims of continuous Turkish aggression, lose more innocent lives to fight Turkey/ISIS? Although, removing Turks from Cyprus would be a start to clean up ISIS-supporters.

Strange, since the Global Gender Gap Survey by the World Economic Forum shows that between 2006 to 2014 the gap in Greece stayed virtually the same, some years it went up by a little, some years it went backwards. In Turkey over those 8 years there was an improvement every year even with Erdogen.

Guess you can prove anything with statistics if your mind id made up beforehand.
