Babae at Bayan, Isulong!
PROGRAM OF GOVERNMENT
BABAYI believes that:
"Structural and cultural realities, such as capitalism, patriarchy, feudal attitudes and the socialization process in general bring about gender oppression, which must be taken into account in all actions including legislation and policy formulation and implementation."
"The equality between the sexes must permeate all kinds of opportunities, i.e., education, employment and political participation."
"Womens significant and effective participation in decision making and all other political processes is necessary to ensure that their concerns are properly addressed."
-Article II, Section 1 Principles
BABAYI Constitutions and By-Laws
"Seek venues for the substantive and effective participation of women in all levels of decision-making, both in formal Government structures and alternative structures of mass movements."
Consistent with its principles and objectives, BABAYI as a national alliance of grassroots, community and sector-based womens organizations and individuals posits that the Party List Law is an important opportunity for womens substantial representation and participation in decision-making processes. It is in this light that BABAYI decided to contest seats in the House of Representatives through the Party List elections and work for the realization of this Program of Government.
As a womens sectoral organization, BABAYI shall prioritize and work on the following concerns:
Consequently, BABAYI hopes to achieve the following in terms of legislation and policy-making.
