2022 National Women's Month Celebration
The 2022 National Women’s Month Celebration (NWMC) endeavors to highlight the gains achieved for women and girls, assess actions towards gender equality and look forward to steps that must be taken to ensure progress in empowering women. With the country still reeling from the COVID-19 pandemic, studies and data show that the health crisis stalled movements towards gender equality, worsening inequalities, further exposing gender gaps, and exacerbating vulnerabilities in social and political, and economic aspects.
2017-2022 NWMC Theme: WE Make CHANGE Work for Women
Culminating the 6-year theme “WE Make CHANGE Work for Women” this year poses a statement and a question: Did WE Make CHANGE Work for Women? How and to what extent? With this theme, stakeholders can gauge the changes implemented towards GEWE, pursuant to laws on women, particularly the Magna Carta of Women.
