BABAYI
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."

"Women’s 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

BABAYI shall:

"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."

-Article II, Section 2 – Objectives

BABAYI  Constitution and By-Laws

Consistent with its principles and objectives, BABAYI as a national alliance of grassroots, community and sector-based women’s organizations and individuals posits that the Party List Law is an important opportunity for women’s 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.

Legislative Priorities

As a women’s sectoral organization, BABAYI shall prioritize and work on the following concerns:

Poverty, employment and women’s economic marginalization;

Criminality and violence against women (VAW) and children;

Delivery of basic services such as: health, education and housing;

Government compliance with or enforcement of international agreements, instruments and conventions related to gender equality and equity; and

Women’s low participation in political decision-making processes and political and electoral reforms.

Consequently, BABAYI hopes to achieve the following in terms of legislation and policy-making.

Bakit BABAYI?

Dahil –

ang BABAYI ay binubuo nating mga ordinaryong kababaihan;

ang BABAYI ay sinusuportahan ng kalalakihang mulat sa mga pagbabagong kailangan ng ating lipunan;

ang inihahain ng BABAYI ay programangt pangkababaihan – at panlipunan; ito ay bunga ng maraming taong pagkilos sa mga problema ng pamayanan;

sa BABAYI, tayo ang bida – hindi mga mayayaman o sikat na pesronalidad na wala namang alam sa tunay nating kalagayan;

kinikilala ng BABAYI ang pangangailangan ng malakas na tinig ng ordinaryong kababaihan sa pamahalaan tungo sa mas makatarungang batas at polisiya;

ANG USAPING PANLIPUNAN AY USAPING PANGKABABAIHAN at ANG USAPIN NG KABABAIHAN AY USAPING PANLIPUNAN!!!
