Greek President Speaks with Students about International Women’s Day

ATHENS — On the occasion of International Women's Day, President of the Hellenic Republic Katerina Sakellaropoulou οn Monday had an online discussion with students from seven schools throughout Greece about how they view the role of women in their surroundings, at school, in peer groups and their family.

Sakellaropoulou took a look back at the history of women's struggle for equality in Greece, starting with the first feminist Avra Theodoropoulou and her efforts to inspire Greek women to strive for the position they deserve. She also referred to Ruth Bader Ginsberg, the liberal-leaning American judge who protected and defended women's rights throughout her life. She also pointed out the current special conditions due to the pandemic, where women were called upon to lift a huge burden and were often confronted with abusive behaviour and domestic violence.

The President concluded her statement by saying that equality is a challenge that concerns everyone and that young children can fulfill their dreams based on their ability.
