Assistant City Social Welfare and Development Officer Edith M.

The second objective is to create and facilitate platforms to discuss good practices, gaps, challenges, and commitments in pursuing Gender and Development (GAD) to strengthen the implementation of the Magna Carta of Women.
And the last objective is to inspire and empower women and girls to be agents of change and to contribute in promoting gender equality and the empowerment of all women.
City Mayor Mauricio Domogan also joined the event to give inspirational talks and also gave a history on how women’s month was conceptualized.
“Make life simple and have fun,” was the message of Judge Delilah G. Muñoz (Ret.) who served as the event’s guest of honor and speaker.
After the program, over 70 offices and organizations joined the parade from Upper Session Road, Baguio City to Melvin Jones, Harrison Road, Baguio City which involves the national line agencies and the Kalipunan ng mga Liping Pilipina (KALIPI), an organized group of women initiated by the DSWD intended to assist women and the youth through community activities and livelihood programs.
