Tabuk City women urged to be agents of change

CITY OF TABUK, Kalinga, April 3 (PIA) -- Women in this city are encouraged to become agents of change during the culmination program of Women’s Month celebration with the theme, “We make change work for women.”


Baguio City Jail Women Dorm Warden J/SInsp April W. Ayangwa, who was the guest of honor, underscored who the women should be to make change.

‘We need empowered women and we will have them when they are open to accept challenges,’ Ayangwa said.

To be strong agents of change, women must get tempered by prevailing over the crises and adversities that come their way. Strong women are women who know and assert their rights and privileges, she said.

Sharing her own work experience as jail warden in a field dominated by men, this principle made her stay in her work. She believes that with the demands of work today, women should take difficult functions and tasks that are traditionally assigned only to men.

To do this, she stressed the value of education and experience, which she said are crucial in developing women to make strong decisions. Strong women are women who know and assert their rights and privileges.

Ayangwa said women today should help change the negative view on the gender as weaker and meek. She clarified, however, that the role is to be more collaborative and complementary with men partners.

“Great results are obtained when we work together in unity rather than when we do things competitively,” she explained.      

In the family, she reminded the role of women as mother and wife to provide listening ear and loving heart. Larry Lopez (ALT/LL-PIA CAR, Kalinga)
