In the words of Ani Jilozian: “Ultimately, this violence stems from patriarchy”

 

WSC research and data specialist Ani Jilozian discussed the current situation in Armenia, her work with survivors and the progress made with UN Women.

“In post-soviet Armenia, the trauma of war, poverty and socio-economic inequalities exacerbates violence against women. But ultimately, this violence stems from patriarchy, and from the idea that a man possesses his wife or that a mother-in-law can control her daughter-in-law.”
