The General Secretariat for Gender Equality (GSGE), i.e. the governmental organization in charge of equality between women and men in Greece, has already uploaded both on the Greek and the English pages of its website on the internet and the facebook the recent ILO Report entitled “World Employment and Social Outlook – Trends for Women 2017” with positive reaction by citizens, both men and women:

In addition, the ILO Report has already been communicated by us to a number of public organizations and independent bodies in Greece. The recipients of our comprehensive message have been, among others, the Hellenic Parliament, the Greek Ombudsman, the National Commission for Human Rights, the Hellenic Statistical Authority, 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, as well as all the key social partners.


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 6-7-2017 concerning the key findings of the specific ILO Report, which gained great publicity among the Greek Mass Media and social media: http://www.isotita.gr/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/ΔΤ-06-07-2017-Οι-τάσεις-στη-γυναικεία-απασχόληση-το-2017.pdf .

In that way, further promotion and greater visibility of the role of the International Labour Organization on women’s empowerment and equality between women and men have been achieved by our initiative among competent Greek stakeholders. After all, the specific ILO Report can serve as a useful tool to design, implement and evaluate policies on gender equality in the field of women’s economic empowerment.
