Today is March 8th - international women's day. It is also a focal point in the women's rights movement. As you are all aware, domestic violence persists as a serious problem in Armenia. Given our country's political and economic situation, we have to be more vigilant to protect our women. Moreover, we have to teach our daughters to be independent, strong, and educated. In this newsletter, we would like to acknowledge the few Armenian women buried in Armenian pantheons.
