In the district of Zeytinburnu in İstanbul, a shopping mall, which is "oriented towards women with conservative sensibilities," has been opened.
At the opening ceremony of the shopping mall Zeruj Port, which has been promoted as "the first conservative and women-oriented shopping mall of the world," the ribbon was cut by a committee which consisted of nine men and one woman (Zehra Özkaymaz, the Chairperson of the Executive Board of the shopping mall).
Although it was initially expected that the shopping mall would serve solely to women, in the press release, it was stated, "Zeruj Port Shopping Mall is the first conservative and women-themed shopping mall of the world, but it is not a shopping mall without men. The doors of the Zeruj Port Shopping Mall are open to our whole public, women or men, conservative or non-conservative."
The opening events for the shopping mall will continue until the evening of May 13. Singers Ebru Yaşar and Alişan will give concerts at the weekend. (ÇT/SD)
