Each year Armenia is losing around 1400 girls, in result of prenatal sex selection and gender-based abortions, which is already a demographic threat for the nation. Prenatal sex selection is deeply rooted in patriarchal structures of society that tend to favor boys. The objective of the project is to contribute to a reduction of gender-biased sex selection in Armenia.
