Vice-Governor Anne Marie on Violence Against Women

“Commit, Act, Demand: We Can End Violence Against Women!” said Olongapo First Lady and Zambales Vice-Governor Anne Marie Gordon, echoing this year’s theme of the 18-day campaign to end Violence Against Women (VAW).

The 18-day crusade against VAW is an annual drive led by the National Commission on the Role of Filipino Women (NCRFW) to promote the rights and welfare of women which started on November 25, the International Day Against Violence Against Women to December 10, the International Human Rights Day and will conclude on December 12, which marks the adoption of the United Nations Convention Against Transnational Crime.

“We can end Violence Against Women (VAW). This social issue does not just involve women, but also men and more importantly children and families, the core of human societies. Hence, we must all work together to battle this problem,” she added.

It can be recalled that Olongapo First Lady and Zambales Vice-Governor Anne Marie, an advocate of women’s rights and welfare, lobbied for the establishment of Center for Women in Olongapo, a temporary refuge for abused and battered women.
