Sappho Women is a non-profit organisation based in the birthplace of poet Sappho, Skala Eressos, Lesvos Island Greece, and is the official producer of the International Eressos Women's Festival held each September since 2000.

The International Eressos Women's Festival is a unique and non-profit making event which celebrates the history, culture, achievements and diversity of women. All women are welcome, included and celebrated here, regardless of their race, age, interests, or sexuality.

The festival is an opportunity to join in social & creative activities, to make new friends, to network, to learn new skills & share talents, to enjoy a taste of Greek culture, and to simply have a great time. It includes live music, dance parties, open-air film screenings, alternative fashion show, art exhibition, beach & water sports, workshops, excursions, and many other fun-and-sun filled activities.

Whether you are a newcomer to this beautiful island, or have made Lesvos your holiday place many times before, whether you are on a single’s holiday, or here with your partner, friends or family, Sappho Women always aims to offer a diverse and inspiring program of events, that appeals to everyone visiting Skala Eressos.

With its friendly and laid-back atmosphere, its reliable summer weather, crystal clear sea and welcoming people, Skala Eressos has all the ingredients for a truly exceptional holiday, and the festival has often demonstrated to be a life changing experience, for both visitors and participants from all over the world. No woman leaves Skala Eressos without knowing more about herself and the impact of women in the world around them.
