What makes up half of the world’s population, and comes in a range of sizes colors, ages, and races? Why it’s women of course! In the Philippines, women also make up half of the population, which makes National Women’s Month all the more important and special. What better way to celebrate by participating in an event that highlights the many achievements, discusses continued empowerment, and commits to bettering women all across the country?
Sometimes, women are so busy working hard to makes the lives of their loved ones happy and healthy, that they sometimes forget and neglect their own wellbeing. National Women’s Month, which all throughout March each year, is a time to reflect on the women in our lives, and for women to address their own issues and concerns about their place in the world.
The last 12 months have been like nothing we’ve ever experienced, with the COVID-19 pandemic posing many challenges and opportunities for women all over the Philippines. This year, National Women’s Month has a strong focus on how women have thrived during these unknown times. Understandably, many of the events surrounding National Women’s Month are being held online this year, with a number of forums and interactive seminars to be held via the Philippine Commission on Women’s (PCW) Facebook Page.

For the women who have become pregnant during the pandemic, the Prenatal Peace genetic screening test is non-invasive, requiring no amniocentesis or chorionic villus sampling. A standard blood draw is all that is required to undertake the DNA test, but it should be mentioned that this does not replace a diagnostic test. This test provides peace of mind for expectant mothers.
March is the month for everyone to take the time out of their busy lives to show appreciation for the people who have loved, nurtured and cared for us the most during this pandemic: women!
