“SEXUAL ATTACK BEYOND SEXUAL HARASSMENT”
Speaking to Ece Çelik from Hürriyet, Pelin Buzluk explained her experiences as follows: “In 2011, it was an event that I can call sexual assault rather than sexual harassment. It is very difficult for me to speak. He invited us to the writing house with my ex-wife. When my wife did not want to come, I went alone. He had physical orientation and strain. I was shocked. I locked myself in the bathroom for a while and said, “I’m sorry, but I don’t want it.” In the years that followed, I blamed myself so much for apologizing. He said, “Then why did you wear this dress?” And accused me of being backhead. After leaving that house that night, he wanted to keep in touch with me as if nothing had happened. He never saw himself guilty. ”
