The Philippine Commission on Women’s (PCW) #PurpleMondays campaign begins today, March 1.
In celebration of this year’s Women’s Month, PCW is encouraging everyone to join #PurpleMondays by wearing a purple shirt or donning anything purple every Monday for the whole month of March.
The agency is likewise encouraging the public to decorate their spaces with purple.
Aside from wearing the purple color, PCW is also urging everyone to take photos and share them using the hashtag #WomenMakeChange.
Globally recognized as the color of women, purple symbolizes justice and dignity.
This year’s Women’s Month Celebration theme is “We Make Change Work for Women Juana Laban sa Pandemya: Kaya!”
Proclamation No, 227 series of 1998 provides for the observance of the month of March as Women’s Role in History month, while Republic Act No. 6949 series of 1990 declares March 8 as International Women’s Day.
