Gender and Development (GAD) refers to the development perspective and process that are participatory and empowering, equitable, sustainable, free from violence, respectful of human rights, supportive of self-determination and actualization of human potentials. It seeks to achieve gender equality as a fundamental value that should be reflected in development choices; seeks to transform society’s social, economic and political structures and questions the validity of the gender roles they ascribed to women and men; contends that women are active agents of development and not just passive recipients of development assistance; and stresses the need of women to organize themselves and participate in political processes to strengthen their legal rights.

As a development approach, GAD seeks to equalize the status and condition of and relations between women and men by influencing the process and output of policy-making, planning, budgeting, implementation and monitoring, and evaluation so that they would deliberately address the gender issues and concerns affecting the full development of women.
Means giving more opportunities to those who have less and those who are historically and socially disadvantaged based on their needs for them to operate on a level playing field. “Focusing on the needs of women does not mean discriminating against men or putting them at a disadvantage”

Our campaign goes beyond Pride Month!
As we conclude this colorful celebration, we strongly reiterate that without protective legal mechanisms for persons of diverse Sexual Orientation, Gender Identity, and Expression (SOGIE) will leave them vulnerable to harassment and discriminatory practices.
In our pursuit of gender equality in the Philippines, the PCW continues to advocate for the enactment of the SOGIE Equality Act. This anti-discrimination legislation aims to safeguard and promote the human rights of all individuals, regardless of their SOGIE.
Here are the policy recommendations of PCW as stated on the Women's Priority Legislative Agenda for the 19th Congress. Read the full Policy Brief here: https://drive.google.com/.../1Fwyy7Py69FZY2gRPboDM3V.../view

Toys have no gender.
It's about time that we break traditional gender stereotypes in toys and allow kids to embrace their individual choices and passions. Let's raise a generation that fosters an inclusive and equitable society!
Women are not objects. In online messages, comments, locker rooms, real-life conversations, online and offline, treat them with dignity and respect.
