Joyous celebrants dancing the night away
Last Sunday I had the great honor to partake in the ancient Thracian celebration of Gynekokratia, or Women’s Day. Around 150 Participants from around the Tri-State area descended on The Federation of Hellenic Societies of Greater New York's Stathakion Center in Astoria, Queens, for the occasion.
