During the recent “Kapihan sa PIA”, the best thing for women needing help is to organize.
At the Kapihan, commemorating the National Women’s Month, lady leaders and entrepreneurs met to discuss women empowerment issues with the theme “Babae: Yaman ka ng Bayan”. The forum also attempted to present to listeners options for livelihood while not really leaving the confines of the home.
Liza Quirog, who heads the provincial office of the Department of Agriculture, an office populated mostly by men, agrees that women are now starting to realize and actualize their skills to earn a few more to keep their family afloat in this time of crisis.
The lady agriculturist also chairs Gender Responsive Economic Activities for the Transformation of Women (GREAT Women) Project said women now must organize so they can help. (rachiu/PIA)
