Women’s Month

March 1, 2011 to March 7, 2011

Proclamation No. 224 declared the First Week of March of every year as Women’s Week and March 8 and every year thereafter as Women’s Rights and International Peace Day.”

Signed by former President Corazon C. Aquino on March 1, 1988, it affirmed our solidarity with the United Nations and recognized Filipino women’s contribution in the struggle for national independence, civil liberties, equality and human rights.

This year’s Women’s Month theme is “Magna Carta of Women, the Philippine CEDAW In support of the Millennium Development Goals.”
