Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan has encouraged women to set up micro enterprises and help their families.
During a live broadcast on Facebook, Pashinyan noted that he knows many cases where men do not allow their wives to engage in entrepreneurship fearing that women would suddenly get more income.
"I couldn't understand them as a man, and now I cannot understand them as a prime minister. It is illogical! You can change the social condition of your family, but you are not allowed to.'
Speaking about the work that women can do he said they could prepare baked goods or candied fruits and sell them to stores. "I consider women one of the forces with the greatest potential of the economic revolution. If women are more active in this regard, we will succeed."
In the live broadcast Pashinyan addressed a number of other ıssues, including the change in the mindset of the Armenian people, which he saıd has initiated a revolution of thought.
