Gynaikokratia Festival – (Gynaikokratia literally means "women rule" or "a government of women") (Gynaikokratia – Γυναικοκρατία) is celebrated, every year, on January 8th. This is a feminist event that breaks the tradition for one day and the roles between men and women are switched.
 
On this day the women filled the coffee houses, the taverns and the villages’ squares with singing and dancing instead of the usual routines that only men sit in the coffee houses while the women work at home.
 
The events are held in the villages and townships of Thrace (Θράκη) region in north Greece, especially in the northern villages Charopo, Petra and Monoklisia.

Greece background and overview:
Greece achieved independence from the Ottoman Empire in 1829. During the second half of the 19th century and the first half of the 20th century, it gradually added neighboring islands and territories, most with Greek-speaking populations. In World War II, Greece was first invaded by Italy (1940) and subsequently occupied by Germany (1941-44); fighting endured in a protracted civil war between supporters of the king and Communist rebels. Following the latter's defeat in 1949, Greece joined NATO in 1952. A military dictatorship, which in 1967 suspended many political liberties and forced the king to flee the country, lasted seven years. The 1974 democratic elections and a referendum created a parliamentary republic and abolished the monarchy. In 1981 Greece joined the EC (now the EU); it became the 12th member of the euro zone in 2001.
