As we commemorate this year's International Day of Action for Women's Health, the Philippine Commission on Women (PCW) reiterates its call for a holistic, inclusive, comprehensive, quality and gender-sensitive healthcare service for our women and girls.
The Philippine Commission on Women (PCW) strongly condemns the abduction of more than 200 girls last April 14, 2014 from their school in Chibok, Borno, Nigeria. Said abduction is a clear human right’s violation and a form of violence against women and girls (VAWG).
The Commission echoes the act as very revolting and is rallying everyone to express support to the Nigerian girls by making their efforts known through social media using the hashtag #BringBackOurGirls.
PCW Executive Director Emmeline Verzosa expresses her fears and sadness for the plight of the girls.
There is no greater gift for Filipino mothers than the immediate and effective implementation of the Responsible Parenthood and Reproductive Health (RPRH) Law following the declaration of its constitutionality in April.
As we celebrate this year's Mother's Day, Philippine Commission on Women (PCW) Chairperson Remedios Rikken emphasized that "every mother deserves quality and comprehensive healthcare, thus making the RH Law a victory of Filipino women."
Thirty-seven individuals from national government agencies (NGAs), local government units (LGUs), civil society organizations (CSOs), academe and civil society organizations were certified as Gender and Development (GAD) Resource (GR) Pool members by the Philippine Commission on Women (PCW) on March 26, 2014 at the Hotel Kimberly, Taft, Manila.
The Philippine Commission on Women (PCW) is set to announce the country's first most gender-responsive government agency on March 28, 2014.
The PCW has shortlisted Cooperative Development Authority (CDA), Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH), Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) and Technical Education Skills (Technical Education and Skills Development Authority), as the agencies whose qualifications met the "GADtimpala's" basic eligibility criteria.
A total of 10,168 participants from government agencies, non-government organizations, state colleges and universities and other civil society groups converged on March 8 to celebrate the International Women’s Day at Quirino Grandstand in Manila.
