2011 - present
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.
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.
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.
This tool contains a set of relevant indicators to measure various aspects of gender-responsive local governance. Specifically, the tool measures the extent to which an LGU provides quality basic services and facilities for its female and male residents, especially from the marginalized sectors, that are gender-sensitive, accessible, affordable, timely, and reliable.
This Compendium titled “Monitoring and Evaluation of Gender Equality and Women’s Empowerment in the Philippines: A Compendium of Indicators” provides a handy tool to guide us in meeting our commitments under the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW), the Beijing Platform for Action (BPfA), the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and national policies like the Magna Carta of Women (MCW) and the Gender Equality and Women's Empowerment (GEWE) Plan 2019-2025.
This BPfA +25 Philippine Progress Report is a product of a national review that takes stock of achievements, challenges and setbacks in its implementation and recommends strategic directions to advance gender equality and the empowerment of women.

The "Enhanced Gender Mainstreaming Evaluation Framework" is composed of two (2) sets of materials which are: A Handbook on the Application of the Enhanced Gender Mainstreaming Evaluation Framework; and the Toolkit on the Enhanced Gender Mainstreaming Evaluation Framework (insets). The GMEF is a tool to measure the extent of the gender mainstreaming efforts of organizations, both national government agencies (NGAs) and local government units (LGUs). It is also meant to assist the Gender and Development Focal Point System (GFPS) members in measuring gains and successes, as well as pinpoint areas for improvement in the way they mainstream the gender and development (GAD) perspective in their respective organizations.
In the Enhanced GMEF, new and emerging gender issues, new policy issuances (especially the Magna Carta of Women) are taken into account and outdated indicators in the old tool were revised.The reference indicators from the Participatory Gender Audit (PGA) and Gender Impact Assessment as well as the relevant descriptors of the GMEF Version 2001 were also used. It has also adopted the scoring system of the Harmonized Gender and Development Guidelines (HGDG) of “No”, “Partly Yes” and “Yes” instead of denoting only the absence or presence of a GAD element. This new scoring system takes into consideration the GAD efforts of
the organizations that are still underway, such as draft policies and plans to establish GAD mechanisms.
