Abstract

The Holy Metropolis of Fthiotida organises a series of anniversary events in honour and memory of the bicentenary of the Greek Revolution of 1821 under the blessing and auspices of the Holy Synod of the Church of Greece. The event is dedicated to the heroines of yesterday and today and to their special contribution against the Ottoman yoke. The speaker emphasises the disadvantaged position of women during the revolution, their catalytic role at national and local level and their sacrifice for the homeland. She refers to typical examples of strong female figures such as the Souliot women, the Messolongi women, the women of Crete, the Peloponnese, Chios but also to anonymous heroines.
