Speaking about women's rights issues in Armenian literature, literary critic Arqmenik Nikoghosyan said: "Our literature, from Abovyan to Armen Armenatsian sitting next to us, has never been indifferent. The issue of women's rights and violence against women has always been raised, so I'm pleased with our literature."
Armen Hayastantsi thinks that "After Tumanyan, no one has formulated a woman's issue in such a comprehensive and powerful way (I mean poems) and this issue which was raised in the early 20th century, is still actual today. It is in the same formulation, it has not been redefined, and we are left in a culture of falsification, where we glorify women, make them heroes but beat and slaughter afterward."
Human rights activist Zaruhi Hovhannisyan sees the solution to the problem of protecting women and getting rid of all stereotypes in education: "Educational and information processes need to be revised as they transmit all the principles by which we build society."
Nina Pirumyan agrees with the great role of education in the fight against violence. "The factor of self-education is very important. By organizing society, self-organization should create a conducive environment that will prevent violence but the problem is certainly legal and legal solutions are more specific."
