Anahit Ghazaryan and Gohar Khachatryan are the creators of Akanjogh (Earrings) Podcast, the first and only podcast that focuses entirely on feminism in Armenian. Since June 2019, the two feminists have been tackling issues related to the pressures put on women.
The two podcasters live in Yerevan, the capital of Armenia. In the country, the word “feminism” is either completely unknown or has a negative connotation.
Armenia suffers from frequent domestic violence and has one of the highest rates of sex selective abortion in the world.
For Anahit and Gohar, the time has come to break taboos, and educate Armenian women about feminism in their own language.
