2nd Infantry Division celebrates National Women’s Month

CAMP GEN MATEO CAPINPIN, Tanay, Rizal With the theme “Juana, Desisyon mo ay Mahalaga sa Kinabukasan ng Bawat Isa, Ikaw na!” 2ID Officers, Enlisted Personnel and Civilian Employees marched off inside camp to celebrate the Women’s Month on March 13, 2015. The said activity started at 8:00 am and was followed by an opening program with BGen Joselito M Reyes AFP, Assistant Division Commander for Admin and Logistics, 2ID represented by Col Rolando C Manalo GSC (Inf) PA as the Keynote Speaker. “While Women’s Month strongly recognizes women’s rights, it is also necessary to emphasize women’s role in nation building. It is a call to recognize equity and fairness in a world where discretion and violence thrive,” said Col Manalo. He also encouraged male Officers and Enlisted Personnel to be fellow advocates for the cause of gender equality. “Women’s issue should not be put on the shoulders of women alone, though they are the ones who mostly suffer discrimination. As they are part of our society, women’s issues must be everyone’s issue. In short, we must all be accountable,” he added.
