Από το ΠΑΚ στις σουίτες του «Four Seasons» | πολιτικη | ethnos.gr

Με τον συχωρεμένο Γιώργο Γεννηματά και τον Κώστα Λαλιώτη, ο Aκης Τσοχατζόπουλος αποτέλεσε τη λεγόμενη «τρόικα του ΠΑΣΟΚ». Η «τρόικα» ισοδυναμούσε με συλλογική υπαρχηγία του Κινήματος. Ο Τσοχατζόπουλος αποτελούσε τον αντίποδα του Γεννηματά. Ηταν απολύτως αφοσιωμένος στον Ανδρέα και πειθαρχικός στις αποφάσεις του.

Την εποχή εκείνη είχε κυκλοφορήσει εν είδει ανεκδότου το εξής: Κάποτε, λέει, ρώτησε ο Ανδρέας τον Ακη τι ώρα είναι. «Ο,τι ώρα πεις εσύ, πρόεδρε», απάντησε. Από τις αρχές της δεκαετίας του 1980 μέχρι το 1996, που έχασε στη διεκδίκηση της ηγεσίας του ΠΑΣΟΚ, ο Ακης Τσοχατζόπουλος γνώρισε μια ιλιγγιώδη πολιτική απογείωση.

The Gendered Dimensions of the Eurozone Economic Crisis – An Update / Library / Home – AWID

Adding to the direct impacts of the crisis are the indirect effects such as a failure to comprehensively and accurately capture women’s experiences. Underestimation of the crisis’ impact on women is exemplified in the labour market, where gender disaggregated data is not always available, and is usually collected in terms of who is ‘employed’ and who is ‘unemployed’. The ‘underemployed’, or the working poor who are working part-time and have had their hours reduced as an impact of the crisis – typically women – are off the radar and hence their experiences are not captured and considered.

n 2009, AWID commissioned research into the impact of the global financial crisis on women’s rights. One of the countries covered in the research was Greece, the first EU country to face the possibility of defaulting on its foreign debts. Lois Woestman, a US and Greek feminist researcher conducted the research which is published by AWID in a brief entitled “The Global Economic Crisis and Gender Relations: The Greek case.”* In this Friday File, we summarize some of the analysis presented in the brief.
