The City Government of Catbalogan joins the 2018 National Women’s Month Celebration with this year’s theme “We Make Change Work for Women”.

The National Women’s Month Celebration every March is part of the worldwide observance of the International Women’s Day (IWD), which is mandated under Proclamation No. 224 s. 1988 declaring the first week of March each year as Women’s Week and March 8 as Women’s Rights and International Peace Day; Proclamation No. 227 s. 1988 providing for the observance of the Month of March as Women’s Role in History Month; and Republic Act (RA) 6949 s. 1990 declaring March 8 of every year as National Women’s Day.

The theme “We Make Change Work for Women” shall be used from 2017-2022 and highlights the empowerment of women as active contributors to and claimholders of development. This pursuit of development is also anchored on the commitment of “Malasakit at Pagbabago” or True Compassion and Real Change.
