Who rule the world?

Mar 9, 2012 by

Gender advocates in the region will once again celebrate the annual Women’s Month in March 2012 through various gender-related activities. The highlight of the activities is a Regional Forum on this year’s national theme: “Women Weathering Climate Change: Governance and Accountability, Everyone’s Responsibility” on March, 9, 2012, 9:00 AM – 12:00 NN and 1:30 – 5:00 PM at UP Visayas Auditorium. Chair Remedios I. Rikken of the  Philippine Commission on Women will be the Keynote Speaker for this forum.

The activity will also highlight the role of UP Visayas as lead institution in building a gender-fair and gender-responsive region.  The series of activities spearheaded by UP Visayas will be attended by gender advocates from the different sectors in the region – academe, government agencies, localgovernment units, non-government organizations and people from the grassroots community.

We will likewise celebrate the 15th year anniversary of the Ugsad Regional Gender Resource Center of Western Visayas as a coordinating agency forgender-related concerns in the region. (Text by Ira Pahila of GDP-UPV)

I am doing my little share in making this very important advocacy a success by hosting the morning program of the forum.

Women. Rule. The. World.
