Women’s Month Celebration
The Women’s Month Celebration of the Science City of Munoz was celebrated last March 4, 2016. This year’s theme is “Kapakanan ni Juana, isama sa agenda”. The theme resonates the call for gender-balance in leadership and decision making positions both in public and private sector; inclusion of women’s concerns in leadership platforms and the government’s development agenda; and capacitating and preparing women and girls to reach their ambitions. 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 (http://pcw.gov.ph/event/2016-national-womens-month-celebration).
