DavNor women council drew more than 2,000  on women’s day

  • March 10, 2017

DAVAO DEL NORTE, 10 March (PIA)--- The Davao del Norte Provincial Council of Women (DNPCW) last Saturday (March 4) drew more than 2,000 women from various sectors as it held early celebration  of Women’s Day.

 

Bannering the national theme, “We Make Change Work for Women”, the event was lined up under  the development agenda of Provincial Governor Anthony G. Del Rosario, bearing the acronym “BEST  PEOPLE”.

 

Governor Del Rosario honoured the Dabawenyo women whom he viewed to  have immensely evolved into talented and innovative as they have been enabled to make choices through intensive efforts to mainstream women empowerment in  all development initiatives of the province.

 

However, he made it clear that “setting the goal to empower women does not translate to overpowering men” and pointed out that “it is not  enough for us to teach our young girls to be strong;  we must also teach our young boys to respect girls  and vice versa”.

 

“ We can do this by being good role models,” he said.

 

On the other hand, DNPCW Provincial Adviser,  Karina Anna C. Del Rosario in the same occasion cited women as “instruments of change”  noting the role of women, especially mothers in moulding children.

 

She counted the support of  the women sector in shaping Davao del Norte saying, “the wisdom and strength we show reinforces the foundation of our society”.

 

She viewed women as “important instruments of social change”  as they “influence and mould future generation” and as they take on the role as “primary caregivers of our families”.

 

Meanwhile, DNPCW also gave credit to former local chief executives of Davao del Norte’s component towns and cities for having contributed to the advancement of women.

 

DNPCW President Providencia Nunez extended her gratitude to the full backing of various Councils of Women from city and municipal governments of the province. Women municipal mayors were also seen giving hands-on participation in conducting the event.

 

New Corella Mayor Rhodora S. Alcoran served as the master of ceremonies; Kapalong Mayor Ma. Theresa R. Timbol served as in-charge of the awarding rites while Carmen Mayor Virginia J. Perandos introduced the guest speaker.  (PIA11/ Jeanevive Duron-Abangan)
