Coalition (Synaspismos) president and vice president of the European Left party Alexis Tsipras, addressing the meeting of the European Left party's women's network that is taking place in Athens, referred to the intricacy of the woman's role and the great extent of difficulties she is facing in all aspects of her life.

Tsipras spoke of the severe blows that neoliberalism has dealt at the modern-day woman, saying "never in the past has an economic system and a social culture used, abused and disdained in so many ways the woman, from Afghanistan to Hollywood and from Europe to Africa."

According to the Coalition's leader, "with the recent economic crisis, an unprecedented social collapse has begun for Greece, during which insecure employment, part-time work, that constitutes the harshest form of exploitation, concerns women to a considerable degree."
