ECONOMIC ACTIVITIES OF MEN AND WOMEN IN ARMENIA
ECONOMIC ACTIVITIES OF MEN AND WOMEN IN ARMENIA
On June 27, the results of the study “Economic activities of men and women in the RA” were presented at YSU.

The study was conducted by YSU Centre for Gender and Leadership Studies in the frames of the “Equal” campaign, conducted by the “Oxfam” organization and “OxYGen” Foundation.

 

The research covered such issues as the involvement of women and men in the labor market, gender peculiarities in the state, private and social sectors, structural and cultural causes of low participation of women in the labor market, economic and political capital ratio of women and men.

 

Representative of the Armenian branch of “Oxfam” organization Lilit Chitchyan before presenting the results of the research said that women’s potential is not used to the extent that it should be used: “The use of women’s potential can really contribute to the development of our country. There are many obstacles and stereotypes that must be overcome for both women and men.”

Then Director of YSU Centre for Gender and Leadership Studies presented the results of the research via videos.

 

According to the experts, the economic activity of women in Armenia, compared with men, is considerably lower.

 

“The study showed that the never-married, widowed and divorced women are more involved in full-time work than married women, which allows us to conclude that in some ways the stereotypes in the areas of labor involvement and employment opportunities for women are broken,” - said Gohar Shahnazaryan.

 

The presentation was followed by questions and answers with the participation of the expert of this research Nvard Manasyan.
