|On Thursday 15 September 2022 the FMA held its ninth Librorum event online in collaboration with the European Parliament Liaison Office in Greece.
Former MEP Dr. Anna Karamanou presented her book “The peaceful uprising of the female sapiens 1821-2021”, which reveals the contribution of women to the expansion and institutional foundation of the Greek state up to the modern European era. It examines the great historical milestones, the role of the political and military leadership, the triumphs and national calamities, the situation of women and the silenced feminist struggles for gender justice, as well as the ideas that shaped modern Greece.
“The cause of women’s rights and the theory that accompanies them, has been the cause and struggle of the female sapiens, who had the courage to rebel and peacefully challenge the dominance of the males, over the female sapiens, together with the irrational social stereotypes and patriarchal order” – Anna Karamanou.
An English summary of the book is available on the FMA website.
