The Center for Women’s Resources (CWR) in partnership with the Municipal Social Welfare and Development Office, (MSWDO) of General Nakar discussed the history of International Working Women’s Day and women’s situation last March 28, 2023. #IWWD2023 #DefendFilipinoWomen
The Center for Women’s Resources joins the 10th Asia Pacific Forum on Sustainable Development with the theme “Accelerating the recovery from the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) and the full implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development at all levels in Asia and the Pacific”.
Through the Asia Pacific Regional CSO Engagement Mechanism (APRCEM) members of civil society bring their joint positions and strategize interventions, tackling systemic barriers in achieving genuine sustainable development. Decades-long implementation of neoliberal policies and market-driven solutions failed to deliver its promise of progress and development. They especially highlight how three years on, the pandemic continues to expose and exacerbate the already existing structural inequalities — in wealth, power, and resources, between countries and within countries, between rich and the poor, and between men and women.

In commemoration of International Working Women’s Day this March 8, CWR organizes a public forum to present Ulat Lila, its annual report on the situation of Filipino women. For 21 years, Ulat Lila has served as an avenue for researchers, community leaders, advocates, and rights defenders to discuss pressing issues on women from different sectors.
Join us on March 1 (Wednesday) 1 pm
JOIN US! “Women Workers Unite!: Uphold Worker’s Right to Organize and Freedom of Association” on January 23, 2023, at 6 PM Bangkok Time via Zoom.
Women contribute significantly to economic production and the country’s development through their participation in manufacturing, industry, and agricultural sectors, many face job insecurity, low wages, and poor working conditions. Worse, many workers become victims of threats and harassment in the course of their work to organize fellows into trade unions and workers’ organizations.
The series of attacks against unionists and activist workers in the Philippines has prompted the groups to file cases at the International Labor Organization to investigate and obligate the government to take steps to ensure that workers’ rights to association and organizing are protected. With much clamor from these groups, the High-Level Tripartite Mission of the ILO will go to the Philippines on July 23 to 27, to look into the serious violations of ILO Convention 87 (Freedom of Association and Protection of the Right to Organise Convention).
