Mount Athos is a semi autonomous mountain in northern Greece. There are some 20 Eastern Orthodox monasteries on the island and the only inhabitants are monks. Based on a historic agreement with the Greek state, only men are allowed entrance into Mount Athos. Greek human rights activists want to change this. They say that it is discrimination of women. The dilemma is: Should the old treaty between the monastries and the Greek state be respected (to keep the island for men only) or should Athos be open for both women and men?
