Honoring International Women’s Day, Women History Month and Greek Independence

NEW YORK – In honor of International Women’s Day on March 8, Women’s History Month, and Greek Independence Day on March 25, One Bean Marketing has created #WeAreGreekWarriors, a global social media campaign to highlight, celebrate, and embrace the powerful Greek women in history.

Angie Xidias, owner of One Bean Marketing, said, “as a Greek-American woman, it was important to recognize and promote the women of the Greek Revolution and their invaluable contributions in leading hundreds of men in various battles across the country to fight in the Greek War of Independence. These women are the example for defiant women seeking equity who continue to fight for freedom and independence to this day.”

She continued, “we see examples in the Ukrainian war, fifty thousand Ukrainian women fighters, many commanding officers, playing a key role in defeating Vladimir Putin. Also, women leaders like Shabana Basij-Rasikh, come to mind, who are fighting for Afghan girls for their education. International Women’s day focuses on embracing women’s equity. Heroines Laskarina Bouboulina, Manto Mavrogenous, Rallou Karatza, Domna Visvizi, Mesolongitisses, Moscho Tzavela, Souliotisses were breaking stereotypes in the early 1800’s. #WeAreGreekWarriors was created to share on your social media to support women, women’s equity, and the Greek ideals of democracy, freedom, and independence and to inspire women to see greatness in themselves.”

Xidias also explained that, “through this campaign, we want to evoke a feeling of pride and pique interest to learn more about strong, independent Greek women who were the change-makers in history and inspire other women to see themselves as influential women who can forge change in the world. The Greek Warrior Spirit is in us all.”
