Armenia: No pride in silence: Domestic and sexual violence against women in Armenia: Summary
Thousands of women in Armenia are regularly subjected to violence within their families. Women who try to defend themselves from violence and seek justice face multiple barriers. It is difficult to report violence in the family as a crime because it is neither defined in law nor clearly condemned as a crime. The state must take urgent steps to change wider attitudes towards domestic and sexual violence prevalent in Armenian society. This summary is based on the report: EUR 54/004/2008.
