In this study, I want to evaluate mothers of martyrs’ perception of the war and solution while to protect its citizens is the state duty, with the assumption of questioning their son’s death, whether they can transform being a mother of a martyr into anti-war women as women examples in the world we have seen. Obviously, as the martyr’s mother, these women have acquired new identities. Nevertheless, how the above-mentioned attitude of questioning motherhood is limited by what the different discourses? As a result, these women, mothers of martyrs, are to remain silent. In this context, throughout my research, as previously mentioned, these women in Turkey have been represented, as a mother of a martyr, will be reviewed.
