About five years ago, I got an e-mail about a conference the Armenian National Committee of America was organizing in Washington DC. It was a 3-day event open to everyone, regardless of what part of the Armenian community one originated from or currently belonged to, in which a series of distinguished speakers and workshops were organized, along with trips to the Armenian Embassy and the Capitol to meet with members of Congress.

Zaruhi has been laid to rest, but her death has raised fundamental questions concerning human rights and gender equality of women in Armenia. It is a poor response by those who claim women are treated no differently in Armenia compared to other countries. How can we justify our probable shortcomings by citing similar shortcomings common to other countries?

Winding down this year’s centenary celebrations, the ARS Central Executive Board concluded the yearlong festivities with a series of functions that began on Oct. 6 in Syria and continued, starting on the 12th of the same month, with events in Armenia and Artsakh, organized by the ARS Central Executive and the ARS entities of Syria, Armenia, and Artsakh.
