Thousands of women in Armenia are regularly subjected to violence within their families on account of their gender. Amnesty International is concerned that these crimes and violations of women’s rights are both significantly under-reported and perpetrated with widespread impunity. This report addresses multiple forms of gender-based violence, including the violence against women perpetrated by husbands, other intimate partners or other family members, sexual violence perpetrated within the family context and the sexual harassment of women in the workplace.
