Gender Equality

APY actively advocates and works for gender equality in Armenia and in the whole region. In 21st century’s Armenian women still experience domestic violence which takes a form of psychological, physical and sexual abuse. This is coupled with widespread gender based selective abortions. At the same, time in APY we are concerned that the word “gender” becomes an adjective to describe anything perverted and sinful, anything aimed to undermine traditional values and families. There is an obvious lack of knowledge especially amongst youth in this field and one of APY priorities is to fill this gap.
