QUEZON CITY The Institute for Labor Studies (ILS) participates in the annual observation of the 18-Day Campaign to End Violence Against Women (VAW) with the 2022-2027 recurring campaign theme, “UNITEd for a VAW-free Philippines,” led by the Philippine Commission on Women (PCW) from November 25 to December 12.  

The campaign theme is aligned with the “UNITE by 2030 to End Violence Against Women” initiative of the UN Women, a multi-year effort to prevent and eliminate violence against women and girls worldwide. 

As part of the Institute’s commitment to the campaign, the ILS’ Gender and Development Committee prepared a series of webinars focusing on topics including gender-based violence and harassment on mental health, and menstrual leave. 

Additionally, the Institute participated in the #OrangeYourIcon advocacy initiative to show its full support. ILS also actively shared VAW-related news, articles, and advocacy campaigns of PCW through the ILS’ Facebook page and other online channels. 

The 18-Day Campaign to End VAW supports the Philippine government’s goal of protecting the human rights of women and girls by upholding its commitment to address all forms of gender-based violence as enshrined in the 1987 Constitution.  

By virtue of Republic Act 10398 or the Act declaring November 25 of every year as the National Consciousness Day for the Elimination of VAWC, government agencies are mandated to raise awareness on the problem of violence and the elimination of all forms of violence against women and girls.
