“Samiye Cahid Morkaya, who applied for a race to be held in Istanbul, between İstinye and Zincirlikuyu and on a track of about 10 km, was rejected due to the fact that no other female driver applied for the race. She then requested to compete with the men, which was accepted by the organizing committee. She won the race; this was in 1932. To this Vehbi Bey, who came second in the race, objected on the grounds that the winner was a woman; he called for the race to be voided. The case ended up in court, which eventually decided that ‘A woman can participate in car races and win’. Samiye Cahid Morkaya was thus victorious.”
