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. 

Specifically, this year’s celebration aims to: 

1. create an avenue for women and women advocates to celebrate the gains of the current administration with regards to closing gender gap, as well as to call on the next administration to continue supporting the advocacy and prioritize women’s issues in various agenda;

2. present the achievements of the Aquino administration in promoting gender equality and women’s empowerment, through the Report on the State of the Filipino Women;

3. gather public perception on what women’s issues should be prioritized by the next administration through crowdsourcing of “agenda ni Juana”; and

4. strengthen public advocacy on National Women’s Month, with emphasis on women’s issues that still need to be addressed.

Please visit the website of the Philippine Commission on Women for more information about the month-long celebration.
