Anti-sexism campaign launched
In an effort to crack down on sexism in the workplace, the General Secretariat for Gender Equality is preparing a TV advertisement aimed at raising public awareness about the issue, and to explain what sort of behavior is considered harassment. The advertisement will be based on real-life stories and women are being encouraged to submit their own experiences at firstname.lastname@example.org by September 1. Four stories will be selected to form the basis of the ad, which will include prominent celebrities.
A sequel to the blockbuster film “Mamma Mia!” – featuring a starr-studded cast singing songs by chart-topping band ABBA – will be made in Croatia and not Greece due to money constraints, according to the UK’s Daily Mail. The original was filmed in 2008 on the central Aegean island of Skopelos. The musical movie triggered a tourist boom on the island, whose residents, the paper said, are now disappointed that the sequel will be produced on the Dalmatian island of Vis. In comments to the Daily Mail, Skopelos Mayor Christos Vailoudis said: “The islanders are upset. The film was very important to us and for tourism.” According to the Mail, the new film will reportedly be released next July to mark the tenth anniversary of the original.
