The Policy of Gender Equality in Greece

Many thanks to the Centre for Gender Studies, Panteion University, School of Political Sciences.

This note provides an overview of the itinerary of equality legislation and policies in Greece since the 1980s in the areas of employment, work/family reconciliation, decision-making, health and violence against women. the achievements and gains of the pre-2009 period are at risk in the current climate of the most severe recession which the country has known since the end of World War II. Special attention is paid to the aspects of equality most affected by the austerity measures requiring intervention.
