Shaping Bangsamoro Women as Cultural Advocates of the New Generation

As Violence Against Women (VAW) continues to be one of the major social problems where many of the negative stereotypes around women arises from certain practices, the Bangsamoro Bureau on Cultural Heritage (BCH-BARMM) supports the advocacy to end the ill-treatment of women by partaking in the Kick-Off Ceremony of the 18-day Campaign to End Violence against Women (VAW) conducted this morning – November 25, 2020 in the Shariff Kabunsuan Cultural Complex (SKCC), BARMM Compound Cotabato City.

With the theme: “VAW Free Bangsamoro Community starts with Me”, BCH-BARMM promotes understanding the importance of Bangsamoro Women as they play a major role in preserving our rich cultural heritage by sharing their talent and teaching the younger generation through demonstration so their art continues to live through their children and other young bangsamoro in the community.

By virtue of Republic Act 10398 or the Act declaring November 25 of every year as the National Consciousness Day for the Elimination of VAWC, government agencies are mandated to raise awareness on the problem of violence and the elimination of all forms of violence against women and girls.
