Coordination of Greek Women’s NGOs for the EWL

Established in 1990, the Greek Coordination was one of the first national coordinations to join EWL. Our Coordination represents more than 50 Greek Women Organizations (NGOs) with a long history in the women’s movement. Some of them have more than a century of active presence not only in Greece but also at a European and International level.

Some of our primary concerns are: the effects of the present economic and social crisis on women, unemployment of women, the elimination of violence against women, as well as the violation of human rights especially in minorities, migrants, women with disabilities and those suffering multiple forms of discrimination.

The Greek Coordination is functioning independently and with transparency so the decisions taken are reflected in a balanced way, always with women’s interests as our first priority.

In our monthly meetings we make decisions democratically, usually unanimously. Of course, there are subjects we discuss a lot and consultation is the most important and usual way of deciding or achieving our common goals.

The long history of the Greek Coordination proves that acting independently and with solidarity, we women can have progress although there will still be many obstacles to face in the future, and in our present situation.

We (NGOs) have no right to disappoint the millions of women we are representing at the National, European and International level.
