“Today, as we celebrate the remarkable achievements and contributions of women around the world, it is the time to honor the strength, resilience and indomitable spirit of women who have shaped history and continue to shape our future. Moreover, women’s month serves as a reminder of the progress we have made in achieving gender equality but also highlights the work that still needs to be done. It is a time to reflect on the barriers that women’s face and to advocate for a world where every woman can thrive and fulfill her potential,” Recto said.

He added that the activity was officiated by Abigaiel F. Paulino, head of Provincial Social Welfare and Development Office (PSWDO)-Aurora. On the other hand, Paulino expressed her sincerest thanks to everyone who participated in the celebration acknowledging the pivotal role of women as trailblazers in society.

“It’s high time to recognize the roles and efforts of every woman and the role of everyone in the pursuit of gender equality and inclusivity. Let us continue to Strengthen our commitment towards promoting inclusivity and equal rights for everyone.
