Marked Improvement In Media Worker Security Seen Under Duterte


The Presidential Task Force on Media Security (PTFoMS) has reported a marked improvement in media worker security under the administration of President Rodrigo Roa Duterte, owing largely to the proactive measures that are now in place to ensure a safer environment for members of the working press.Image result for media killings in the philippines
Although one case— that of Catanduanes News Now publisher Larry Que— has been verified to be a media worker killing (MWK) during the first nine months of President Rodrigo Roa Duterte, a number of cases handled by the PTFoMS during the same period involve threats, harassment and physical assault against journalists. This is the first time that the government has documented and taken action on these potentially deadly incidents reported by the victims themselves.

MAGANES: Hail to the Filipino women!


vir
In a matriarchal society like the Philippines, women are revered, honored and respected. Gone are the days when  they were often referred to as the “weaker sex” due maybe to their physiques and their being frail. Physically, they are not that strong but inside them are emotions that could turn tides into ripples, soft but resilient and strong to combat the vicissitudes of life.
Philippines is a country that has a history of “gender equality” long before the United Nations (UN) declared in 1990 a “gender equality and women empowerment.” UN says, “Gender equality is not only fundamental right, but a necessary foundation for a peaceful, prosperous and sustainable world. Providing women and girls with equal access to education, health care, decent work, and representation in political and economic decision- making processes will fuel sustainable economies and benefit societies and humanity at large.” UN also declared March 8 as International Women’s Day. This year’s theme is ” Women in the Changing World of Work: Planet 50-50 by 2030.”
In her message on the observance of International Women’s Day, UN Women Executive Director Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka said,” Across the world, too many women and girls spend too many hours on household responsibilities-typically more than double the time spent by men and boys. They look after younger siblings, older family members, deal with illness in the family and manage the house. In many cases this unequal division of labour is at the expense of women’s and girls’ learning, of paid work, sports, or engagement in civic or community leadership. This shapes the norms of relative disadvantage and advantage, of where women and men are positioned in the economy, of what they are skilled to do and where they will work.” However, this is not the real situation now in the Philippines.
Recognizing the role of women in nation building, the Philippine government has issued in the past administrations the following legal bases: Proclamation No. 224 series of 1988 declaring the first week of March each year as Women’s Week and March 8 as Women’s Rights and International Peace Day; Proclamation No. 224 series of 1988 providing for the observance of the Month of March as Women’s Role in History Month; and Republic Act No. 6949 series of 1990 declaring March 8 of every year as National Women’s Day. Aside from these legal issuances, there is Republic Act No. 9710 or the Magna Carta of Women.
