The Palawan Capitol has spearheaded the celebration of National Women’s Month with the theme “We make change work for Women.”

The Capitol led the opening salvo of the celebration yesterday, which aims to highlight the role of women in nation-building.

“Palalakasin natin ang skills o kagalingan ng ating mga kababaihan upang sila ay ma-mainstream – mapasakop at mapabilang sa ekonomiya ng ating probinsya,” Provincial GAD Focal Person Ninfa B. Rubio was quoted as saying.

The celebration started with the ‘sunrise parade’ from Puerto Princesa City Baywalk to Palawan Capitol, joined by around 250 Barangay Gender and Development Monitors (GAD Monitors) as well as the Capitol’s women employees.

“Nagsagawa rin ng banal na misa at pagbabasbas ng mga booth sa handicraft and food commodities expo 2019 tampok ang mga lokal na produkto tulad ng banig, bayong, kasoy at daing,” said the province.

“Isa sa mga programang isasagawa ay ang seminar on gender mainstreaming and community development na aniya ay makakatulong upang mapalakas ang karunungan ng mga Barangay GAD Monitors sa pagsusulong ng pagkakapantay-pantay ng kalalakihan at kababaihan sa kanilang mga barangay,” it added.
