The Department of Environment & Natural Resources-10 (DENR-10) together with Environmental Management Bureau-10 (EMB-10) and Mines & Geosciences Bureau-10 (MGB-10) kick off the 2021 National Women’s Month Celebration (NWMC) with ribbon cutting ceremony to officially open the Gender & Development’s (GAD) Booth in DENR-10’s executive building. The GAD’s booth features Information, Education & Communication (IEC) Campaign Materials on Laws protecting Women & Children and video clips showing the women’s experiences in dealing with the pandemic. This year’s National Women’s Month is anchored with the theme “Juana laban sa Pademya: Kaya!”. This year’s campaign is to highlight the contribution and participation of women in battling against the pandemic COVID-19 as well as addressing issues concerning empowerment and a call to action for a more sustainable gender equality.
