National Women’s Month 2019

Happy Women’s Month!

For 2017 to 2022, the recurring theme for the annual Women’s Month Celebration (NWMC) is “We Make Change Work for Women” to highlight the empowerment of women as active contributors to and claimholders of development.

By virtue of Proclamation No. 224 series of 1988, the first week of March is declared as “Women’s Week” alongside March 08 as “Women’s Rights and International Peace Day”; while Proclamation No. 227 series of 1988 provides for the observance of the month of March as “Women’s Role in History Month”; and Republic Act No. 6949 series of 1990 has officially declared March 08 of every year as “National Women’s Day”.

These are anchored on the worldwide observance of the International Women’s Day (IWD) putting emphasis on the significant roles that women play in today’s society.

So in your own ways, how will we make change work for women?
