Happy IWD 2016 from the Philippine Women Centre of BC

22828425184_85fe0fed99_zAs we celebrate International Women’s Day 2016 and think of ongoing struggles of Filipina women against oppression and exploitation, we call on Filipina women to come and share their stories.

We all hold valuable stories and knowledge to contribute to build the history of Filipina feminists in Canada. We continue to face racism, oppression and exploitation in our daily realities. The best we can do is ensure that we are not struggling in isolation.

We invite Filipina women in Vancouver to join us at our Sinigang Sundays events (every first and third Sunday of the month). Our hope is to celebrate the history of organizing of filipina women and to make new connections with each other to advance the equality of all women.

International Women’s Day is meant to establish a strong women’s movement for empowerment to know our rights as women. Let us continue to fight back and move forward.

Happy International Women’s Day to all of the women who organize, speak out and stand strong for women’s genuine liberation.



Next Sinigang Sunday: March 20, 2016 1-3pm (save the date!!!) To join us at Sinigang Sundays, please RSVP at pwcofbc@gmail.com and tweet us @pwcofbc
