IACVAWC Strategic Plan on Violence Against Women and their Children 2017-2022

This 2017-2022 Strategic Plan of the Inter-Agency Council on Violence Against Women and their Children (IACVAWC) suceeds the Strategic Plan 2014-2016 as IACVAWC's guide pursuing its mandate under Republic Act 9262 or the Anti-Violence Against Women and their Children Act passed in 2004. The formulation of the plan followed a rigorous process of consultation conducted among VAWC service providers and victims, review meetings with IACVAWC working committees, and analysis of inputs and insights gained through these consultations. The said consultative processes aim to capture the gains and strengths of the program as well as surface areas in the implementation of RA 9262 - specifically improving service delivery to victim-survivors of violence against women and their children - that need priority action.

IACVAWC National Advocacy and Communication Plan 2017-2022

This National Advocacy and Communication Plan was formulated in response to challenges faced in implementing RA 9262 as primary preventive mechanism to reduce the developmental and human rights impact of gender-based violence against women. This national plan was drafted through review of relevant documents, reports as well as advocacy and communication materials produced in the last five years; a stakeholders' communication planning workshop and close consultation with the IACVAWC secretariat and its technical working committee.

Gender-Fair Media Guidebook

The Media Gender Equality Committee (MGEC) recognizes that gender inequality in media practice is an issue that is bigger than the Committee. The "Towards a Gender-Fair Media Guidelines" that was launched in 2013 was the initial attempt to create positive impact towards gender issues in media. Four years later, the challenge of raising awareness on gender-fair practice among media practitioners remains. Development in the social media space have shown that the public consciuosness is ripe and ready to actively shape media content and increased openness of our media partners to learn to recognize and change practices that are discriminatory or non-inclusive.
This second edition is the next major step in the process of learning and changing. It is also the gateway to a more dynamic engagement between the Committee and our media partners. It sets us off to a journey towards the Philippine media that celebrates women and men, regardless of sexual orientation, gender indentity and expression.
