“What you should do – go and live with him, he is your husband, never mind”

With the initiative of the Standing Committee on European Integration of the Armenian National Assembly, some of the participants of the parliamentary hearings yesterday appeared to be frustrated that women should be punished in the family with beating and humiliation, as the priority is to keep the family.

Committee Chair Naira Zohrabyan urged the participants not to hold these hearings as clashes as the previous public debate, as everyone has the right to express their opinion.
