Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

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 gramg­ 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.
