“I used to be Anahit before my 30-years’ husband killed me with a piece of concrete and a wooden stick after a regular violent quarrel.”

“I was Maro. I was 20. I am said to perform a suicide with the belt of my robe, while there were only fingerprints on my neck”.

The above mentioned and some other similar incidents were presented on December 3 in Charles Aznavour square by ”Society without Violence” NGO. The action was organized in the frames of 16 days of activism against gender-based violence and it was entitled ”Domestic violence as a ground for a strong family”. Three out of the four presented cases are dealt by the Rapid Response Unit established by the organization the mission of which is to find out the cases of domestic violence in our society, give them public coverage and to pursue transparent and fair investigation.
