On this Diploma Thesis we have made an effort to highlight the course of women's education during the 19th-20th century, where both genders within the greek territory were of great importance in the process of provision of an suitable education. After the Greek Revolution the leader of the Greek state, Ioannis Kapodistrias, first raised the issue of a formal female education, that until then was limited to Homeschooling, enacting government bills for the establishment of primary and secondary education. The foundation of Society for the Promotion of Education and Learning (1836) was important, with I. Kokkoni as the proponent, the action of which contributed in the constitution of All-Girl Schools and Teacher Training Institutions that later evolved to Education Academies. At the beginning of the 20th century the demand and later conquest of the feminist movement was the mixed-gender education that in the long run became acceptable of the Greek society. Finally, another important accomplishment of the woman's fight for equality in education was the first female attendances in Academic Faculties and their breakthrough in the work area, while the contribution of influential women on educational and social grounds is worth noting. The detailed examination of this subject was completed with the conduct of qualitative research via interviews on 45 women varied between ages of 20 and 90 years old. Women that graduated from the Secondary Education due to difficult circumstances and women that continued their education to Faculties of Primary Education in various regions of Greece, were both selected. This way the differentiations of the past education system in regards to the contemporary were emerged, mainly in the matter of the interpersonal relations of both genders in and out of school, the way of admission to higher grades and as well as the way of punishment that reflected the society's perceptions of that era. On the other hand, the higher education does not appear to be differentiated perceptibly from it's current configuration. Opinions and facts, therefore, were recorded as they were personally experienced, offering a much more completed point of view on the issue of the female education
