Oct 09, 2017




The General Secretariat for Gender Equality (GSGE), i.e. the governmental organization in charge of equality between women and men in Greece, has widely publicized in our country the recent FEMM report on women’s economic empowerment in the private and public sectors in the EU (European Parliament, Plenary Sitting, Strasbourg, September 2017): http://www.europarl.europa.eu/sides/getDoc.do?pubRef=-//EP//NONSGML+REPORT+A8-2017-0271+0+DOC+PDF+V0//EN .

First of all, a very comprehensive report in Greek and a concrete summary in English have already been uploaded on our website and our page in the social media:

(it is underlined that until the morning on 9-102017 the relevant articles posted on 3-10-2017 and 6-10-2017 had attracted the attention of at least 1.577 persons).

In addition, on 2-10-2017 2017 the report was communicated by us to a number of public organizations and independent bodies in Greece and on abroad. The recipients of our document have been, among others, the Hellenic Parliament, the Greek Ombudsman, the National Commission for Human Rights, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Permanent Representations of Greece to the International Organizations, the Ministry of Economy, the Ministry of Interior, the Ministry of Administrative Reconstruction, the Ministry of Education, Research & Religious Affairs, the Ministry of Labour, Social Security & Social Solidarity, the Ministry of Health, the Ministry of Culture & Sports, the Ministry of Justice, Transparency & Human Rights, the Ministry of Rural Development, all the key social partners, as well as the EU Institutions represented in Greece (i.e. the European Commission and the European Parliament) and the World Bank.

Furthermore, after a proposal by the competent GSGE Director for Development & Support of Policies on Gender Equality, the General Secretariat for Gender Equality issued a press release in Greek on 6-10-2017, which gained great publicity among the Mass Media and social media in Greece: http://www.isotita.gr/δελτίο-τύπου-η-ανάγκη-οικονομικής-ενδ/ .

In that way, further promotion and greater visibility of our joint pivotal role on gender mainstreaming, women’s economic empowerment and equality between women and men have been achieved by our initiative among competent Greek stakeholders.
