About This Year’s Program
Many Greek women were actively involved in the revolution for independence. From the “Filiki Eteria” to Souli, the Mani peninsula and the Mesolongi.
Laskarina Bouboulina and Manto Mavrogenous were known for their unique contributions to the revolution. Elisabet Ypsilantis, mother of the Ypsilantidon and “Protomana of the Filikon”.
Marigo Zarafopoula, the “spy” of the Filiki Eteria. Konstantina Zacharia who gave the signal for the rebellion in the plains of Laconia when she was put in charge of 500 fighters in the town of Leondari. Asimo Lidorikis, who the French philhellenes admired as she wandered around the besieged Acropolis with the sword of her dead husband. Euanthia Kairis, a feminist and writer who in 1825 addressed the European philhellenic women. Captain Domna Visvizi, who saved Odyssea Androutsos, participated in many naval battles and gave her ship to the state to continue the fight for independence.
Εlliniko Horio 2021 pays tribute to these fearless and courageous women!
