‘An essential service’: Armenia’s Women’s Support Center works to respond to domestic violence

Ani Jilozian is the director of development at the Women’s Support Center, Armenia’s leading organization working to respond to and prevent domestic and intimate partner violence. Ani sat down with CivilNet’s Mark Dovich to discuss the Women’s Support Center’s work, proposed changes to Armenia’s domestic violence laws, and the Istanbul Convention, a Council of Europe human rights treaty that Armenia has signed but not yet ratified.

The Women’s Support Center’s hotline is 099 88 78 08. You can donate to the organization’s annual crowdfunding campaign here.
