The recognition is held annually by the department to recognize women who make outstanding contributions to the agriculture and fisheries sector.

“Through our Gender and Development Program, we also aim to give women the opportunity to participate in more aspects of life and livelihood and to recognize and value their support to the family, the community and the economy of the country,” Regional GAD Focal Person of Central Luzon Dr. Irene Adion said.

“Honoring the unique women that we do is a way to inspire women to stand out, identify and show elegance,” she added.
