Anahit of Erebuni is an online platform that aims at celebrating the strength, resilience and wisdom of Armenian women in order to give them the place they deserve in our history and the knowledge of our common heritage and culture.
The overall goal of this project is to provide a safe place where Armenian women can exchange about their experiences, support each other and amplify their voices and visibility in our community in order to promote a more inclusive, equal and peace-oriented Armenian society.
The objectives of Anahit of Erebuni are to: 1) highlight the contribution of Armenian women to our culture and improve access to their work; 2) interview present day Armenian women from around the world in order to document what it means to be an Armenian woman today; 3) democratize gender studies and intersectionality in the Armenian community through the use of social media; and 4) promote the voices of Armenian women as agents for change.
This page is in English in an attempt to reach as many people as possible in Armenia and in the diaspora, but I hope to be able to translate or provide material in other languages whenever possible.
