Walk for Women’s Rights, March 1

Last year, I posted something about the passage of laws as legal bases for the celebration of the National Women’s Day/Month.

This year, the 2010 National Women’s Month celebration with the theme, “Babae, tagumpay ka ng bayan!” kicks off again with a Walk for Women’s Rights with no other than Ms. Akiko Thompson and around 5,000 women who’ll be walking Global City grounds on 1 Mar. 2010 at 6AM to raise public awareness on RA 9710 known as the Magna Carta of Women, the newly enacted comprehensive law on women’s human rights.

On top of this walk event, there’ll be booths and exhibits that showcase products on health & wellness, beauty & cosmetics, fashion & accessories, food & culinary and more!

Free seminars on women’s issues, livelihood skills demonstrations, makeover sessions, hair treatment, massage, bone screening, medical and legal consultations and counseling, plus freebies and giveaways.

And the best part of it, ADMISSION is FREE!
