IPTC INFO
CaptionThe Social Role and the Cultural Identity of Women in Patra --------by Christiana Grigoriou & Christina Metaxioti _ ______________________ "Carnival was a social phenomenon that acted beneficially in order all conservative taboos regarding women to be reversed.Thus the Woman of Patra quickly adopted the fashion of the time wore mini-skirts smoked large pipes with jasmine flavor in the aristocratic lobbies of rich raisin traders during private dances enriched her cultural property with dancing lessons participated in theatrical carnival plays contributed to carnival organizing committees mostly expressed their eroticism under black mask in the well-known dance of "Bouboulia" and of course they controverted the Church which during the 19th and 20th centuries wanted them to be debauched because of Carnival and because of the fact that during Carnival they weren't under the strict boundaries of their house and family where they should always belong."
