Building a Body
Oyku Basar – had theatre and music education in conservatory- has been doing bodybuilding for 3 years. She began bodybuilding to get the healty weight and  identifies it as one of the most difficult professions. Oyku was prepared to compete by exercising 6 days a week and applying a special diet for 8 months.

She came first in the Bikini Fitness -160  category  and represented Turkey in Santa Susanna, EBFF Fitness Championships.
As the result of the patriarchal society,  people recognize that part of the feminine identity is sculpting their physical appearances and they usually associate the common feminine identity with slenderness and a trim figure and  emphasize  femininity  by altering the body for society's gendered expectations.
The International Federation of Bodybuilding & Fitness –IFBB  has made several rules changes on the sport of female bodybuilding that relate to expected feminine identity. Bikini competition was created as a category with much less emphasis on muscularity to accommodate even more women into the world of physique competitions. IFBB recognised bikini competition as an independent competition category on 7 November 2010. Bikini category looks for lean and firm physique and competitors are scored on proportion, symmetry, balance, shape and skin tone.

Sports is an important social area for the reproduction of the male supremacy ideology.
Ideal body  designated by the rules – either ‘muscled’ or ‘femine’- is being shaped by the masculine perspective and as in many other social areas, all the work and experiences of women are marginalized in this process .
