GENDER ISSUES IN FOCUS
On May 11, the two-day International Scientific Conference “Gender issues in modern Armenia: from policy to research” was opened at YSU.

The conference, organized by YSU Centre for Leadership and Gender Studies, is devoted to the presentation of 28 researches, which were conducted in 2013-2014 in Armenia by the researchers occupied in the sphere of social sciences. They have received support from the CGLS in this process.

 

The results of the research “Gender Barometer”, made in September-December of 2014, were presented. This research is the first in its kind, representing the overall picture of public attitudes regarding the roles of men and women. It also refers to the gender stereotypes dominant in our society.

 

Speeches were made by local and international experts, as well as independent researchers.

 

The agenda includes researches of scientific and practical significance, such as “The analysis of gender discourse in Armenia”, “Women’s political participation in local elections”, “Socio-cultural factors for women’s career building in higher education system”, “The impact of migration on gender roles change in Gegharkunik marz”, “Sexual harassment in the workplace as a factor impeding women’s career advancement” and so on.

 

The conference will continue tomorrow as well.
