“It is a call to you, Greek woman of today. I know you have fought a lot to move forward. Even to survive. If there are second thoughts in your mind, I challenge you to ignore them and instead – dare, because by daring you are not only representing yourself but you are representing thousands of Greek women all over the world who will be inspired by you, by your own story. Because women inspire women!” said the President of GIWA Mrs. Sofia Konstantopoulou.
