- I am so beautiful, so beautiful -
A fabulous dream world, full of aspiration to beauty and profiling: life is orientated to partner search, marriage and children. Especially among celebrations of the Roma, the tend to it is very sensible. Weddings and celebrations are occasions for the girls to showcase and even display themselves, escape from their monotonous everyday life, which consists of household, family and children. Men mostly spend very little time at home during the day, women's life happen in private and men's life in public space.
Traditional Turkish, Kurdish and Roma families are living in Balat, surrounded by conservative and patriarchal structures. Violence against women and children is very common. The bond between women is very strong though, daily visits are lasting hours.
The young generation lives the challenge between traditional values and a more self confident, modern life.
