MSU-GSC celebrates National Women’s Month

Anchored in this year’s theme, “We Make Change Work For Women, Juana Laban sa Pandemya: Kaya!”, Mindanao State University-General Santos City (MSU-GSC) joined the nation in commemorating the 2021 National Women’s Month Celebration. 

Despite the restrictions posed by the pandemic, MSU-GSC found innovative ways to take part in the month-long celebration. With the Gender Focal Point System (GFPS) on the lead, the university organized and spearheaded a series of activities that highlighted the extraordinary roles of women in the society as trailblazers of change and harbingers of development. 

This includes a workshop on “Personality Development: Proper Usage of Cultural Attire” on March 14 at AVR, University Library with the aim of addressing issues on cultural misappropriation and promoting cultural sensitivity. This was followed by virtual episodes of gendered conversations dubbed as “GAD Dula Online” on March 24 and March 26 with the objective of promoting gender and development awareness.

Likewise, The Institute for Peace and Development in Mindanao of MSU-GSC, in partnership with Ministry of Interior and Local Government-BARMM and United Nation’s Development Programme, also organized the “Conversation-Reflection on Gender, Community Resilience, and Peacebuilding” on March 26 in Cotabato City. The event featured various women-led organizations and their insights and contributions on conflict-prevention and peacemaking towards strengthened community resilience. 

The Office of International Affairs also launched its “Women of the World” (WoW) campaign which highlighted the significant role of women in the internationalization efforts of the university. The WoW campaign featured women professors that brought the name of MSU-GSC in the national and international arena. 

Lastly, in a culminating activity on March 31, the GFPS launched a compilation of dedication messages from various offices through a vlog. The university constituents sent their regards to all empowered women inside and outside of the campus. 

All of these activities were a reaffirmation of the university’s commitment towards advancing gender equality and promoting women empowerment. As the month-long celebration concludes, MSU-GSC continues to honor women from all walks of life and their invaluable contributions to the world we live in today.
