The evening before the international women’s day, the hbs Tbilisi office Yerevan Branch presented its first Anthology of Armenian translations of 80’s feminist texts. More than 60 people attended the presentation that took Place at Zangak Publishing House, including five members of the Parliament.
This book unites Georgian translations of 6 academic essays from the feminist theory written by prominent feminist authors: A. Rich, C. T. Mohanty, N. Taub and E. Schneider, S. M. Okin, U. Narayan and C. Enloe.
The research demonstrates how progressive civil society groups became the avant-garde of the Armenian revolution by acting as an inspiration and role model for larger social groups by popularizing various mechanisms and techniques of resistance.
