SAN JOSE KOOP Joins the
2016 One Billion Rising: Revolution (Listen! Act! Rise!)
by Vice Chair. Richard Avena
For the first time in the history of the City of San Jose del Monte, more than 5,000 women, men and the youth joined hand in hand, donned in their official black uniform, dancing under the scorching heat of the sun and congregated at the bypass road of Minuyan Industrial Site, Brgy. Minuyan Proper to show their unified action to end violence against women and girls in the One Billion Rising: Revolution (Listen! Act! Rise!) – City of San Jose del Monte Event last March 19, 2016 from 2:00 pm onwards.
One Billion Rising is the biggest global mass action to end violence against women in human history. The campaign, launched on Valentine's Day 2013, began as a call to action based on the staggering statistics that 1 in 3 women on the planet will be beatn or raped during her lifetime. With the world population at 7 billion, this adds up to more than ONE BILLION WOMEN AND GIRLS.
This activity was held in celebration of the National Women's Month with the theme: "Kapakanan ni Juana, Isama sa Agenda!" Members of San Jose Koop Wellness Club participated along with different barangay volunteers, city employees, women's organizations, other NGOs, civil society and zumba groups in the city composed of 10 clusters both from District One and Two. The program was highlighted with the awarding of the three (3) Huwarang Juana who showed courage and resiliency as a mother, wife and provider of their respective families. City Councilors Hon. Irene B. del Rosario, Hon. Janet DS. Reyes and Hon. Liezl N. Aguirre-Abat spearheaded the said momentous event, and was graced by prominent women advocates Vice Presidentiable Hon. Leni G. Robredo (represented by her daughter Jillian), Ms. Shalani Soledad-Romulo, PBB Ex-Housemate Say Alonzo, among others. San Jose Koop Vice Chair Chie Avena was one of the hosts of the said program and also danced throughout the official dance flash mob for 12 times (per cluster x 10 and twice as a whole group). The event ended with high hopes that women and men will be more educated and empowered, and that this start of a revolution can bring everyone from the personal to the political – from the "I" to the "We", and will harness collective energy because it is hopeful and envisions possibilities and a future.
