COMMEMORATIVE SET OF STAMPS “MARCH 8 – INTERNATIONAL WOMENS DAY”
Τετάρτη, 7 Μαρτίου 2018

The celebration of International Women’s Day on 8th March has its roots in the early 20th century and the struggles of women to secure equal rights, better working conditions and the vote.

On 8th March every year, we honour the achievements of women around the world for more than a century, continuing to fight for an end to sex discrimination and to demand that gender relations be based on the principles of equality, freedom, solidarity and dignity.

Every year, 8th March is a day of action in support of equality around the world.

That is why the General Secretariat for Gender Equality suggested that Hellenic Post create a Commemorative Set of stamps which is now being issued for the first time, entitled “8th March – International Women’s Day”, to send a strong message in support of equal rights for women in all areas and the practical implementation of real equality.
