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.

The Government of Armenia rejected the adoption of the "Domestic Violence Law", so we need your support to make our voices heard!

Please, help bysigning the petition launched by Coalition to Stop Violence against Women.
