Turkish women are taking to social media to protest comments from the country's Prime Minister, who says laughing in public is not honorable for women.

In fact, he says it's a requirement that they don't.

So the women instead have chosen to flood Twitter with pictures of them cracking up in scandalous places like parks, stores, even public transportation.

The PM sparked a similar social media protest with remarks about abortions in 2012.

Yet despite his reputation as a hardline conservative, he maintains widespread support from young women throuhgout Turkey.
