Changemakers: Greek Women 1821 to 2021

A Virtual Event Series

Join the Boston Lykeion Ellinidon for a year-long commemoration of women in the 1821 Greek War of Independence and beyond. Through virtual events and digital content, we will spotlight women’s diverse roles in the Greek Revolution. Together, we will examine their legacy for modern-day Greece and the Greek diaspora.

Looking Back, Looking Forward

The changemakers of 1821 are not frozen in a time capsule: their footsteps echo in Greek culture to this day. Our series highlights the Greek women who have preserved, protected, challenged and led in diverse domains since the Revolution. In doing so, we hope to celebrate history, create dialogue, and build community.
