Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,
Dear Colleagues,
 
I would like to inform you that the General Secretariat for Gender Equality (GSGE), i.e. the governmental organization in charge of equality between women and men in Greece, has widely publicized the gender aspect of the first World Humanitarian Summit (Istanbul, 23-24/5/2016). More specifically:
 
A detailed article written by the competent GSGE Director on the key messages of the Summit and its emphasis on the topic "Women and Girls: Catalysing Action to Achieve Gender Equality" has already been uploaded both on the Greek and the English pages of our website on the internet and the facebook with positive reaction by citizens, both men and women.
 
Although the article is in Greek, you will easily recognize the links to the WHS. As far as the facebook page is concerned, you will admire a sample from the documents prepared for the Summit at once! The relevant links are the following: 
 
 
 
In addition, the relevant GSGE document has already been communicated by us to a number of public organizations and independent bodies in Greece. The recipients of our document have been, among others, the Hellenic Parliament, the Greek Ombudsman, the National Commission for Human Rights, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Permanent Representations of Greece to the International Organizations, the Ministry of Economy, the Ministry of Environment, the Ministry of Interior & Administrative Reconstruction, the Ministry of Education, Research & Religious Affairs, the General Secretariat for Research & Technology, the National Centre for Research, the Ministry of Labour, Social Security & Social Solidarity, the Ministry of Health, the Ministry of Culture & Sports, the Ministry of Justice, Transparency & Human Rights, the Ministry of Rural Development, as well as all the key social partners.
 
Furthermore, under a proposal by the GSGE Director for Development & Support of Policies on Gender Equality, a press release was issued on 16/5/2016 which was disseminated to an extensive list of recipients in Greece: http://www.isotita.gr/var/uploads/DELTIA%20TYPOU/2016/May/DT_16-05-2016_H%20Prostasia%20twn%20Gynaikwn%20kai%20twn%20Koritsiwn.pdf.
 
Its comprehensive content gained the public attention and a widespread publicity by the Mass Media all over the country. Here is an indicative source of twenty-seven relevant links associated with the gender issues of the World Humanitarian Summit:
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
In that way, further promotion and greater visibility of the role of the WHS on women's empowerment and equality between women and men have been achieved by our initiative among competent Greek stakeholders.
 
The Greek side would be grateful to you if you informed your leadership accordingly.
 
Wishing you and all the members of your team the very best,    
   

   Yours sincerely,

THE DIRECTOR
