SC Celebrates Women’s Month

March 4, 2020

The Supreme Court (SC) of the Philippines joins Women’s Month celebrations with various activities lined up this March.

With this year’s theme “We Make Change Work for Women,” the Employee Training and Development Division, Office of Administrative Services, in coordination with the Committee on Gender and Responsiveness in the Judiciary, has prepared activities for its employees to celebrate femininity and women empowerment.

The festivities kicked off with Juana Dance?, a Zumba class held last March 2. The other activities are Juana Know? Raising Millenials: Bridging the Gap, a seminar-workshop aimed at equipping parents on how to mold and understand their millennial children; Juana Defend Yourself?, a Krav Maga self-defense training that focuses on understanding risky situations and how to defend one’s self effectively.

Also lined-up are Juana Know?, a series of seminar-workshops on the laws protecting women, and Juana Watch?, where the participantswill be treated to a free screening of Owl Butterfly by Anastasia Film Productions, a psychological drama on sexual abuse trauma recovery presented in the most realistic but decent manner suitable even for young viewers.

Specially designed ID lanyards have also been distributed earlier to all SC employees to be used for the whole month of March.

The celebration of Women’s Month is a continued campaign of the SC that glorifies the contribution of women in national development and the persistent effort to empower women.###
