Hate Speech and Hard Truths

00:00 00:00

EVN Report’s editorial team members sat down with Lara Aharonian, Co-Founder and Co-Director of the Women’s Resource Center, who came under attack following a speech she delivered on International Women's Day where she stressed that laws protecting women in Armenia should take into consideration all types of women - from women living in border towns to single mothers to lesbians. This led to a flurry of online hate mail and death threats against Aharonian. While she has had to deal with hate speech in the past, the unprecedented attacks this time around compelled her to create an album on Facebook she called the Museum of Hate.
