There are few ethnic groups in the last 150 years that have been persecuted as severely, and as often, as the Armenians. The tiny country of Armenia lies between Turkey and Azerbaijan to the West and East, Georgia to the North, and Iran and Turkey to the South. Despite its small size and relative obscurity, Armenia has a rich culture and history. It is also currently the victim of one of the greatest injustices taking place on a world stage.

As of last Friday, the OES Women’s Rights Club had its first meeting. The club was started by Zara S. ‘23, along with the help of faculty member Sophia Stone. There was a great turnout to the club’s first zoom meeting with students from all grades. In the club we will be addressing an extensive list of topics, both suggested by Zara S. and added by club members. If you are interested in joining, no matter what grade you’re in or what you identify as, all are welcome!
