Coalition to Stop Violence against Women in Armenia gave a press conference on February 14 to call for the passage of Domestic Violence law which was recently rejected by the government where Maro Matosian of Women’s Support Center participated as member of the Coalition.
DV is not just a women’s issue; it is a national issue and it is a human rights issue. By failing to pass this critical legislation, the government sends a very clear message to the Armenian people and the world that it does not fulfill its obligations of international conventions Armenia signed and that it considers the prevention of domestic violence to be a low-priority issue.
Domestic violence and abuse are inexcusable!
Support of the Domestic Violence law because it’s time to fight back against domestic abuse.
