PENRO Eastern Samar thru the leadership of the PENR Officer Moises B. dela Cruz joins the whole nation in celebrating the 2017 National Women’s Month with the theme “We Make Change Work for Women”.

            In his first State of the Nation Address (SONA), President Rodrigo Roa Duterte directed “all agencies, oversight bodies and local government units down to the barangay level to fully implement the Magna Carta of Women." This is 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 new administration is also anchored on the commitment of “Malasakit at Pagbabago” or True Compassion and Real Change. Thus, the first National Women’s Month Celebration under the new leadership will focus on these key foundations: partnership for change and full implementation of the Magna Carta of Women (Republic Act 9710), captured through the theme: "WE Make Change Work for Women." (http://pcw.gov.ph/WomenMakeChange)

            Consistent with 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, 2017 celebration aims to: 

  1.  inform and engage women as stakeholders of government programs and services to promote citizen-centric governance and make “change” a conscious effort to know, understand, and provide what ALL citizens need;

  2. create and facilitate platforms to discuss good practices, gaps, challenges, and commitments in pursuing gender and development (GAD) – to strengthen implementation of the Magna Carta of Women; and 

  3. inspire and empower women and girls to be agents of change – to contribute in promoting gender equality and the empowerment of all women.

           All agencies, local government units (LGUs) and other instrumentalities of the government shall organize their own activities and other initiatives that contribute in the attainment of these objectives. (http://pcw.gov.ph/WomenMakeChange)
