CITY OF MALOLOS - In accordance to Presidential Proclamation 224 and 227, the Provincial Government of Bulacan through Gawad Medalyang Ginto will recognize outstanding Bulakenyas at the Hiyas Pavilion, Hiyas ng Bulacan Convention Center in line with the observance of National Women’s Month come Monday, March 10, 2014.

According to Gov. Wilhelmino M. Sy-Alvarado, the award anchored to this year’s theme “Kababaihan: Handa sa Pagtugon sa Tawag ng Panahon” aims to recognize outstanding women in different fields, give inspiration to other women and to serve as an advocacy for a gender-sensitive province that serves as a reminder that women contribute to progress.

“Unsung heroes, kadalasan ganyan ang mga kababaihan, mula sa mga sakripisyo ng isang ina hanggang sa mga babaeng humahawak ng posisyon pribado man o sa gobyerno. Matagal na tayong tapos sa panahon na ang mga babae ay nasa bahay lamang, tapos na tayo sa panahon na tinanggalan ng karapatan ang mga kababaihan sa maraming bagay kaya marapat lang na kilalanin natin at maipadama ang halaga ng mga babae sa ating buhay,” Alvarado said.

According to Panlalawigang Komisyon para sa mga Kababaihan ng Bulacan (PKKB), seven women will be awarded this year. Two will receive the Medalyang Ginto award for Natatanging Babae and Natatanging Samahang Pangkababaihan and five under the category of Sectoral Award which include Matagumpay na Babaeng Mangangalakal, Matagumpay na Ginang ng OFW, Matagumpay na Babaeng Makakalikasan, Huwarang Kabataang Babae sa Pamumuno, and Matagumpay na Konsehong Pambayan para sa Kababaihan.

Winners will receive cash incentive, trophy and an emergency whistle with necklace.

Eva Fajardo, PKKB Chairwoman said that the 37 nominees for this year undergone three levels of screening: table validation, personal interview and field validation.

The Women’s Month and Gawad Medalyang Ginto in Bulacan were set in 1996 through the Executive Order No. 96-07 and Board Resolution No. 215 and has already awarded 93 Bulakenyas. ###
