All government agencies are enjoined to participate in this year’s observance of the 18-Day Campaign to End Violence against Women (VAW). The campaign is lead by the Philippine Commission on Women which is anchored in the theme End VAW now! It’s Our Duty!: Gains and Ways Forward. The event will run from November 25 to December 12 and aims to highlight the impact of collaborative efforts between government agencies and stakeholders in addressing violence against women and children.
To promote public awareness, the Civil Service Commission released Memorandum Circular No. 17, s.2015 enjoining all government agencies to actively participate in various VAW activities, as follows: (1) participation in the Orange Your Icon for 18 Days advocacy; (2) hanging of streamers; (3) participation in the online campaign thread with the official hashtag #endVAWph; and (4) conduct of advocacy campaigns.
