In celebration of International Women’s Month 2017, the poetry group Mga Anak sa Dagang (MAD), in cooperation with Robinsons Galleria Cebu and the USC Cebuano Studies Center held a poetry reading dedicated to women all over last March 18, 2017 at the Basement 2 of the Robinsons Galleria.
The poetry reading will pay tribute to the strength and resilience of women through poetry. Proclamation No. 227 s. 1988 provides for the observance of the month of March as Women’s Role in society.
MAD’s “Babayeng Gamhanan” is envisioned to celebrate empowered women which is in line with this year’s theme of “We Make Change Work for Women.” Creative writers, literature teachers, students, and literature buffs of Cebu converged at the said event highlighting the role of women in society.
