Gender Equality, women’s empowerment are a pathway to achieving the millennium development goals and should be perceived not only as human rights but as the main key to sustainable development. Taking into account that the world celebrated International Women’s day on March 8, on the very same day, EYP Armenia organized an essay competition on “Women Empowerment in Armenia”. The assessment was implemented in cooperation with the EYP representative from Italy, Portugal, Georgia, Ukraine, Kosovo and the Netherlands. Based on the jury voting results, essay by Ani Karapetyan was chosen to be the best. Ultimately, Ani Karapetyan was chosen to represent Armenia at the upcoming 73rd International European Youth Parliament Session in Zurich.
