Translation workshop. The works of English speaking famous feminists are on the point.
Translation is an opportunity to dive into language and interpret according to a careful reading of the given text. In a sense, translating also provides an opportunity to create knowledge in the language being translated into, especially when translating from such a global language as English, into a smaller language, Armenian. The goal of this particular workshop is to interpret/translate the works of well-known English-speaking feminists, especially those creating and taking part in post-colonial, third-world feminist discourse, and making these texts accessible to an Armenian-speaking audience.
The workshops will take place every Wednesday evening from 5-7, starting Wednesday March 20th.
“March 8th Every Day” Performance March
At 3:30PM on March 8th of this year the Women's Resource Center NGO launched the "March 8th Every Day" month-long campaign to celebrate and fight for women's liberation. A number of civil activists, human rights activists, and interested individuals walked from Isahakyan's statue to different parts of the city in celebration of International Women's Rights Day.
The march, which is realized every year, was even more unique this year due to its artistic nature. The march consisted of several giant, colorful puppets in different women's images and a mini-street-performance, which concentrated on the lived reality of women in Armenia.
Sign the petition. it is important for all of us
According to official statistic data 766 cases of domestic violence occurred in Armenia in 2012, five women were killed, leaving behind 12 underage children during the past year showing that domestic violence is a serious issue in Armenia. Gender-based violence or hate crimes are unique and don't fit into the regular criminal or civil liability structures. Thus, the necessity of "Domestic Violence Law" in Armenia is more than obvious.
