#BilangBabae is an online advocacy initiative  of the Philippine Commission on Women for the 2017 National Women’s Month Celebration. 

It aims to gather women netizen’s perspectives on two things: (1) the changes that they want to see relative to women’s issues and concerns, and (2) how they see themselves contributing to make these changes happen.

The initiative will use Facebook as a platform using the hashtags #BilangBabae and #PartnerForChange. 

Posts/entries will be gathered from March 1 to 20, 2017. These will be consolidated through a video montage which PCW will feature in its official social media accounts and during the Women’s Summit on March 30-31, 2017. PCW will randomly select from pre-evaluated entries 20 winners of special prizes as simple token for participating in the activity.
