Eve Constantinou












My name is Eve Constantinou and I am a Food Technologist specializing in Food Quality Assurance, working as a teacher at KES college in Cyprus. As a teacher, I am teaching courses with main subjects including: Food Hygiene, Food Technology, Food Quality Management, Organic Food - Nutrition and Health Benefits, Food Storage and Preservation. These courses are in the fields of the followinf studies: School of culinary arts, hospitality and tourism; and Technician for the production of organic products.

Through my experience as a teacher in the field of culinary arts and also in the field of organic agriculture, I noticed that women are at a disadvantageous position compared to men and this, I believe, is mainly derived due to the belief that the above-mentioned fields are considered to be male-dominant professions. For this reason, women either avoid pursuing courses related to production and gastronomy or, even if they choose to study so, they interrupt their studies due to bulling issues (such as they are not as good as men etc.) or because they feel they are inferior to men in these professions.

As a woman, and based on my experience, I believe that a woman can equally respond perfectly to professions that are characterized as male-dominant and in this a way for gender equality to be achieved!
