Who is the most influential female personality in Georgia?

Wednesday, March 18
“I don’t know how influential she is but I appreciate Nino Ananiashvili, she is the real face of Georgian culture.”
Dali, housewife, 46

“I would say Sandra Roelofs, the first lady of Georgia. She is an influential and nice woman.”
Tamta, student, 21

“If we discuss the most influential female I think we should make our decision between female politicians. A year ago Nino Burjanadze was still the most influential but now I think her rating has fallen. Now, I would say that the most influential women are Eka Sharashidze [head of the President’s Administration], Eka Zguladze [Deputy Interior Minister] and Eka Tkeshelashvili [head of the National Security Council]. Wow! Three Ekas! Is this not interesting?”
Irakli, sales manager, 32

“I don’t know who the most influential female is among politicians. During the war Eka Tkeshelashvili did a great job, better than any men could have done in her place. But now I really find it difficult to say who the most influential female in Georgian politics is.”
Gvantsa, student, 20

“Perhaps our first lady Sandra Roelofs. Women like her are very few. I think people like her more than they like her husband.”
Eka, accountant, 45

“Historically the most influential woman in Georgia was definitely Queen Tamar. It is difficult to say who might be listed after her. She was unique.”
Marina, teacher, 58

“I think Nino Burjanadze remains the most influential woman in Georgia. I think she is still able to influence people through her speeches.”
Roza, teacher, 61

“I would name Salome Zourabichvili as one of the most influential women in Georgia. She is a very good diplomat and has very good contacts in Georgia and abroad.”
Zura, psychologist, 39

“Inga Grigolia is one of the most influential females in this country. She is a good journalist and a strong person. I appreciate her very much.”
Tina, housewife, 47

“It is very hard to name one person. I think Elene Tevdoradze is quite an important person in politics. She is a rare exception in the political field, she is honest and reliable, also quite smart.”
Nineli, real estate agent, 56
