Wednesday, July 30 was clearly a day for collective laughter and smiles on Twitter in Turkey as hundreds of women posted pictures of themselves laughing. It wasn't just grinning for the sake of a ritual. This was a laughing in the face of the deputy prime minister, Bülent Arinç, who in a speech a couple of days before on Eid had said that women should not laugh in public. So what trended on twitter was hashtags #direnkahkaha (resist laughter) and #direnkadin (resist woman).
