QC backs PCOO gender advocacy

Quezon City Vice Mayor Joy Belmonte on Thursday backed the advocacy of the Presidential Communications Operations Office to foster the fair portrayal of women in media and entertainment.

“Quezon City supports such kind of advocacy to ensure equality among women. The media is one of the most powerful forces to let our people learn [things],” she said.

The PCOO has just released the “Philippine Revised Gender-Fair Media Guidebook.” 

“We from the city promise to give solutions on the issues of discrimination, gender stereotypes, and so many other concerns, too. We, together with the media, would help one another to educate our future leaders,” Belmonte said.

The guidebook aims to address gender stereotypes in news, entertainment writing, and film and television production in collaboration with local media and schools. 

PCOO’s campaign is in line with the thrust of the  Quezon City’s bid to be a “gender-sensitive city.”
