 Looking back

On the basis of Women's Club, which has been operating since 1987, "Hayouhi" Women's Association was founded in November 1990 and was registered with the Ministry of Justice in January 1991. It was the first registered non-governmental organization in Armenia, which considered its mission to raise women's role in the field of political, economic, public and cultural life in the process of democratic changes. 

"Hayouhi"'s programs involved conferences, round tables and seminars on women's issues, measures to protect women’s copyright, including organization of exhibition of amateur female-pointer’s works and masters of applied arts, charity concerts, financial support for single mothers, widows of the fighters for freedom, for families of 1988 earthquake victims in Gyumri.


The association organized series of seminars on sexual and reproductive health and rights, as well as a number of seminars on fine arts for senior school children and students and presented its new publication: “A dictionary of fine arts terminology” (by Mary Yerznkyan, 1996). 

In 1997 the Association reconsidered its Regulation. The mission of the organization was reviewed and a new strategy was developed. The organization made a decision to focus its activity on promotion of women's and children's rights. Thus, "Hayouhi" was renamed into Women's Rights Center and reregistered with the Ministry of Justice in November 1997.
