FemHouse has managed to create a vibrant hub for activist movements in Yerevan, including a feminist library and a small café. They organise reading clubs, lectures, exhibitions and performances to spark discussion on feminism and other sensitive issues. However, they have been victims of threats and intimidation from far-right groups, which forced them to leave their office and relocate more than once. EED funding is contributing to emergency relocation costs, rent and operational expenses.
