For women like Paunil, birth control methods were accessible because she lives close to a clinic of Likhaan Center for Women's Health. 

"I decided to get an implant because there was no way we would survive [if we have] another child," said Paunil. A birth control implant is about the size of a matchstick. It is inserted inside a woman’s upper arm and releases hormones to prevent women from getting pregnant.

Happy Women’s Day!

For women who continue to struggle against poverty and gender discrimination in the margins, ano nga ba ang kasiya-siya sa araw na ito? Their family incomes are dwindling, prices are soaring, and government social services, such as housing, are patingi-tingi. Many of the laws that women pushed for women’s rights and wellbeing – like the VAWC and RH Laws - continue to be token promises as government fails to follow up with budget and earnest implementation.


Indeed, what is there to celebrate?
