Challenges that adolescent girls face in Armenian society
Adolescence is a transitional stage of physical and psychological human development generally occurring between puberty and legal adulthood. This is one of the stages of a girl's life which is considered to be a rather difficult one, full of new challenges, problems and obstacles. The physical changes that take place with the adolescent girls have their huge impact on their psychology and very often lack of self awareness and self-estimation may ruin the future regular development of the girl's inner and outer life.
Adolescence is a fundamentally important transitional time for girls, during which they must be provided with guidance, support and encouragement to open up and discover who they are as an individual and how they desire to fulfill their unique and valued purpose on the planet.
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.
