Women have banded together along the Black Sea region of Turkey to protest the ongoing construction of hydroelectric power plants and mines, both of which have the potential to cause widespread environmental damage. Nazlı Demet Uyanık, from the town of Arhavi, helped form the resistance group of self-styled “sparrow-hawks” which stages protests, often without the approval of their male family members. Multiple generations of women stand together, determined to preserve nature even as corporations and their own government try to push forward. Photo credit: Hürriyet Daily News
