Gynarchy – “Babo” (the midwife) – “Vrexoudia”

It is an ancient ritual honoring women, reproduction and childbirth. During this celebration that lasts 24 hours, women are in charge of the village, occupying public buildings, electing a woman president as well as a municipal council consisting exclusively of women, while men are forbidden to leave the house where they are engaged in housework. The celebration of “Babo” concludes with a night feast.
