Siquijor (17 October) -- Last October 15, rural women were paid tribute as the nation celebrated the Rural Women's Day with the theme Pagkilala ng mga Kababaehan sa Kanayunan sa Seguridad sa Pagkain at Tubig"
The celebration was in line with Presidential Proclamation 1105 declaring every 15th day of October as the National Rural Women's Day in consonance with the celebration of the World Rural Women's Day.
The occasion highlighted the largely unrecognized contribution of rural women the world over to food security and to development of rural areas.
This year's celebration was spearheaded by the Pambansang Koalisyon ng mga Kababaehan sa Kanayunan. (PIA) [top]
