Thousands of women in Armenia are regularly subjected to violence within their families. Research has established that domestic violence is a widespread problem in Armenia and has also found evidence of sexual violence and sexual harassment, which remain significantly underreported. Survey data has suggested that more than one in four women in Armenia may at some time experience physical violence at the hands of husbands or other family members, with much higher figures reported for psychological forms of violence.
