“If decisions are being made for women and men, then why are women not at the table?
For a country like ours, which relies on human capital, excluding women from politics and wasting their huge potential, is a luxury.
For 20 years, I’ve been a part of the gender equality movement in Armenia. I’ve realized activism is not enough to improve people’s lives. All bright ideas are just theory until you participate in decision-making.
There is a widely spread misconception that politics is not for women, that women do not want to be engaged in politics. Working with many women in the field, I can say with certainty that women want to, can and must change the decision-making culture.”
