To mark 8 March as International Women's Day, the Zonta Club of Cebu II, the Philippines, celebrated the achievements and contributions of women in different spheres who work towards building a society free of all gender biases, stereotypes, gender parity and discrimination.
The club wanted to honor all women working to make a difference by creating advocacy banners. The banners featured the winning photographs from their Celebrating Women's Resilience and Strength Photo competition with uplifting and affirming messages in Cebuano. The photos showcased strong, intelligent, talented, and simply extraordinary women breaking the glass ceiling and rewriting the rules in the family, agriculture, business, academe, governance, finance and the community.
The club displayed the banners in government buildings, schools, police stations, city hospitals and social welfare offices across the 27 Barangays in Mandaue City.
