2016 National Women's Month Celebration
"Kapakanan ni Juana, Isama sa Agenda!"
This year’s theme is “Kapakanan ni Juana, Isama sa Agenda!” (Include Women in the Agenda).
The theme resonates the call for gender-balance in leadership and decision making positions both in public and private sector; inclusion of women’s concerns in leadership platforms and the government’s development agenda; and capacitating and preparing women and girls to reach their ambitions.
Consistent with Proclamation No. 227 s. 1988, the annual conduct of the National Women’s Month Celebration (NWMC) aims to give due recognition to the contributions of Filipino women in our society.
The Philippine Commission on Women (PCW), the lead advocate for women’s empowerment and gender equality, lined up a series of activities for the National Women’s Month celebration that will give emphasis on the call to include women’s concerns in leadership platforms and the government’s development agenda.
These include: development and production of advocacy materials and collaterals for the 2016 National Women’s Month Celebration; Forum on Gender and Election-Related Violence; International Women’s Day Celebration; online advocacy campaigns; and, lots of freebies and discounts for women.
