Beginning March 7, in honor of Women's "Month" in Armenia, the Artists' Union of Armenia opened an exhibition called "Women and Spring." The show, which will run until the beginning of April, features the work of a variety of women artists and very different mediums, from sculpture to tapestry, each of which portray the different roles women play in their individual lives and in the world.
International Women's Day was launched for the first time in Europe on March 19, 1911. A decision was later made to celebrate it on March 8, when in 1977 the United Nations announced March 8 as International Women's Day. Today, in Armenia, "Women's Month," as it is unofficially known, is celebrated from March 8 until April 7.
