IMG 7897the first time the Women's Resource Center and the Sexual Assault Crisis Center jointly organized during April a series of activities aimed to promote Sexual Violence Awareness. The main goal of the events were to separate the sexual violence related issues that exist in Armenian society and to speak out about the sexual abuse, its prevention methods and about what actions are needed to be taken in order to overcome sexual abuse.

Thus, during the discussions of the working group official data on violence, the Criminal Code against sexual inviolability and sexual freedom, sexual abuse, rape as a war weapon and many other data were separated.
