Note 28: Note that at the time of publication, less than one-third of the Greek-speaking population lived within the borders of the new Greek state, which was then comprised of the Peloponnese, Roumeli, Attica, Evvoia, and the islands of the Western Aegean (Cyclades and Sporades).
Mazower (1993: 227) notes the case of the island of Evvoia, where the exclusion of women from public affairs was so entrenched that they rarely, if ever, appeared in the people's courts (laika dikastiria).
Note 15: Other lesser-known heroines of the Revolution include Konstandia Zaharia from Sparta, Savaina from Mani, Asimo Lidouriki from Athens, and Domna Visvizi of Evvoia. back
