Living Feminism: An Open Discussion on Feminism in our Everyday Lives

The Women’s Support Center organized an event on March 15th at Aeon cafe entitled “Living Feminism: An Open Discussion on Feminism in our Everyday Lives”. Panelists Armine Arakelian, a political scientist and international lawyer, Anna Shahnazaryan, a feminist and environmental activist, and Florence Low, a feminist activist who studies the representation of women in media, came together to talk about their personal experiences that have shaped their feminism, the significance of International Women’s Day, and thoughts about the burgeoning women’s movement in Armenia. Thirty individuals from various backgrounds participated in the discussion and shared their views on creating safe spaces, politicizing feminist ethics, and strategies to act against the countermovement, among other themes. Many expressed interest in continuing the dialogue and organizing similar open discussions on a regular basis.
