    History

    <p> The Women's Resource Center was founded in 2003 by women from Armenia and the diaspora, and is the first resource center created in the post-soviet Armenia for young women. <p> At the beginning it was located inside the Yerevan State University campus and served as a drop-in center for young female students. From 2006 WRCA moved to the downtown of Yerevan and now is open for women of all ages, education, sexual orientation and social backgrounds. <p> WRCA is working in the area of women's human rights, reproductive and sexual rights, sexual violence and women's role in the conflict resolution and peace building in the region of South Caucasus. <p> The organization is one of the initiator of "Women's Coalition for Peace" and "Young Women's Network of South Caucasus" and is cooperating with women's organization in Georgia, Abkhazia, Azerbaijan and South Ossetia. <p> Since 2008 WReC has started a hotline and peer-to-peer group for the girls and women- victims of sexual violence in Yerevan.
