Women in Armenia have been officially guaranteed gender equality since the establishment of the Republic of Armenia in 1991.
This has enabled women to actively participate in all spheres of Armenian life.
In the Bible, the area designated as Armenia is referred to as Ararat, which the Assyrians referred to as Urartu.
Armenians also identify themselves as the people of Ararat/Urartu and of Nairi, and their habitat as nairian ashkharh or yergir nairian .
Armenians call themselves Hay, the term which is traditionally tied with the name of their own legendary founder, Hayk - who led the entire Armenian country to glory against Babylonians thousands of ages ago.Generally speaking, these women are very appealing.This can certainly be proved by aged Armenian women.Armenians call themselves hay and identify their homeland not by the term "Armenia" but as Hayastan or Hayasdan.The origins of these words can be traced to the Hittites, among whose historical documents is a reference to the Hayasa.
