“The dance was an expression of the achievements of women and at the same time, an encouragement to women to step up and be active in the fight for women’s rights and their welfare and development in the country,” Castares said.

Prior to the kick off, the DAR participated in the fun run and zumba activities of the Provincial Government of Sultan Kudarat in a pre-women’s month celebration of the local government.
