Chapter 8 uses the analytical tools of feminist geography to reflect on the implications presented throughout the book, as well as to examine gendered-spatial dimensions in iconic representations of the 2013 Taksim Gezi Park protests in Istanbul. The chapter reveals the gendered and sexual politics at work in the images and accounts that have come to represent the Gezi protests. Some of these images rely on established norms and roles, but others challenge dominant understandings of femininity and masculinity. The chapter traces two themes that link the Gezi uprising to other cases examined in the volume. The first focuses on the body as an intimately political site at the experiential and representational levels. The second explores the crossing of the public/private divide and the domestication of so-called public space during the revolutions and uprisings.
