Since the celebration of Women’s Month is based on a National Law which is Republic Act 9710 otherwise known as Magna Carta for Women Act of 2009, all government instrumentalities such as Local Government Units, including the barangays as the smallest political unit in the country are hereby enjoined to conduct activities showing support to the women and gender equality.
In keeping the pronouncement of the Philippine Rodrigo Duterte’s inaugural address, the implementation of the Magna Carta for Women is in the main agenda of every local government unit so as to ensure that man and woman will be partners in the pursuit of the country’s economic, social, cultural and political developments. This pursuit of development under the Duterte administration is also anchored on the commitment of “Malasakit at Pagbabago” or True Compassion and Real Change. Thus, from 2017 to 2022, we will focus on these key foundations: partnership for change and full implementation of the Magna Carta for Women (Republic Act 9710), Captured through the theme: “We Make Change Work for Women.”
