The United Nations has declared March 8 as International Women’s Day (IWD) to honor women and underscore the important role they play in creating a just and humane society.

Much has been achieved by the women’s rights movement but more needs to improve in matters of gender equality, reproductive rights, and violence and abuse against women.

In the Philippines, women marked IWD with a protest march to Malacañang to press the government to fulfill the eight-point agenda for women which includes decent jobs and higher wages, accessible quality public services, support in coping with climate crisis, land for farmers, upholding sovereignty, and an end to violence and harassment.

Their placards also made clear their opposition to the current moves to change the Constitution.
