Note that, according to a study conducted in 2010 within the framework of "Strengthening the capacity of women in building peace in the South Caucasus", 81% of Armenians were convinced that there was a problem of inequality between men and women in matters of representation in government. Of these, 38 % believed the problem was very acute, and only 15 % believed the quantification of the inequality was not a problem, the Caucasian Knot reported.
