Declaration

WSC is calling for all political parties and authorities in Armenia to commit to establishing a society where women are treated with respect and dignity.

Concrete steps are needed to be taken to implement the points ratified by Armenia in all the international treaties and create the legal economic social framework in which women are allowed to prosper. A just society for women can be created by:

  • Introduction of laws criminalizing domestic violence
  • Providing victims with shelter, therapy, necessary medical and psychosocial treatment, and accommodations for children
  • Educating society about gender-based violence
  • Providing victims with every possible tool to be independent members of society.

This in turn will pave the way to create a healthier country, where human rights are respected. After all, a strong Armenia is in the interest of every Armenian.
