City celebrates Women with Disabilities’ Day

The total development and empowerment of women is a State policy enshrined in the 1987 Philippine Constitution, which specifically provides that “The state recognizes the role of women in nation-building, and shall ensure the fundamental equality before the law of women and men”.

Proclamation No. 744 issued last December 06, 2004 has declared the Last Monday of March of Every Year as “Women with Disabilities’ Day” believing that women with disabilities are part of society and as such, deserve equal rights in the field of law and in all aspects of human endeavour.

This year’s celebration adopted the theme “Isulong: Pantay na Karapatan para kay Juanang may Kapansanan”, which aims to highlight and integrate the needs and concerns of women with disabilities to ensure their participation in all aspects.

In support of the said celebration, The City Government of Catbalogan through the City Gender and Development (GAD) Council has organized a get-together among women with disabilities with an activity dubbed as “Pagkatitirok: Pagtitipon ng mga Juanang may Kapansan” last March 30, 2014 at Guinsorongan Beach.

City Mayor Stephany Uy-Tan who initiated the said activity, was personally present to extend encouragement and support to these women who are worthy of salute and a source of inspiration.

The said activity incorporated discussions on Magna Carta for Persons with disabilities, a cooking demonstration, and a discussion on their issues and concerns.

The City Social Welfare and Development Office has recorded nearly 200 women with disabilities, which majority attended the said activity. Apart from the celebration, the women were able to bring home not only grocery packs for their families but a lifted spirit and a renewed outlook in life.
