About my life in Armenia, about being a mom and an activist, working for women's rights.
The challenges and benefits of raising a family in a post-soviet republic.
Finding a place, my place and calling it HOME.


Women and Work - ETF Conference/ 7-8 March

After a hectic week at work in-between presenting reports, preparing for the International Women's Day in Armenia and launching the campaign on sexual violence, i find myself finally resting for a couple of hours at the departure area of the Zvartnots airport. I am heading towards Turin where I will take part in a 2 day conference which gathers bloggers, activists and students from different part of the world to discuss gender equality in the perspective on women's work, school-to-work transition and female economic participation. The main objective is to raise awareness on the issues of gender equality challenges in education and employment and present new innovative ideas and suggestions to policy makers from 29 countries surrounding EU on the day of the IWD.

The journey to get there is a little long as anywhere you go to from South Caucasus, but looking forward for the meeting.
