The National Library of the Philippines joins the celebration of the 2024 National Women’s Month

March 1, 2024
Grounded on the objective of transforming culture toward a more equal and inclusive future, the 2024 NWMC bears the sub-theme, โ€œ๐™‡๐™ž๐™ฅ๐™ช๐™ฃ๐™–๐™ฃ๐™œ ๐™‹๐™–๐™ฉ๐™–๐™จ ๐™จ๐™– ๐˜ฝ๐™–๐™œ๐™ค๐™ฃ๐™œ ๐™‹๐™ž๐™ก๐™ž๐™ฅ๐™ž๐™ฃ๐™–๐™จ; ๐™†๐™–๐™ ๐™–๐™ฎ๐™–๐™๐™–๐™ฃ ๐™ฃ๐™œ ๐™†๐™–๐™—๐™–๐™—๐™–๐™ž๐™๐™–๐™ฃ, ๐™ฅ๐™–๐™ฉ๐™ช๐™ฉ๐™ช๐™ฃ๐™–๐™ฎ๐™–๐™ฃ!โ€ It echoes the target outcomes of Chapter 15 in the Updated Gender Equality and Womenโ€™s Empowerment Plan 2019-2025 towards transforming gender norms and culture.
With โ€œLipunang Patas sa Bagong Pilipinas,โ€ the 2024 sub-theme calls for a Bagong Pilipinas where women are given equitable opportunities and not hindered by gender biases and discriminatory stereotypes. โ€œKakayahan ng Kababaihan, patutunayan!,โ€ aims to showcase and harness the full potentials of women and girls in actively engaging in and reaping the benefits of national growth and development. However, achieving this requires an enabling environment free from discriminatory values, stereotypes, beliefs, treatment, and portrayal of women and girls across family, religion, education, sports, media, and other relevant institutions. The vision extends to government agencies and institutions incorporating gender mainstreaming in the bureaucracy, men joining the cause for equality, and establishing a legal framework that supports the protection of marginalized groups of women, including the girl child, persons with disabilities, Indigenous Peoples, Muslims, and those with diverse Sexual Orientation, Gender Identity, and Expression (SOGIE).
