E very year, women—and men—around the world celebrate the International Women’s Day on March 8. But the activities are held not only on this day but throughout March.


The United Nations, governments, and non-governmental organizations choose different themes to focus on issues affecting women. For 2010, the UN has chosen “Equal rights, equal opportunities: Progress for All.”


As part of this celebration, Kalikasan, Kaunlaran! (KK) is featuring, throughout March 2010 women with notable accomplishments in various fields. On March 10, 2010, Wednesday, 6:30-7:30 PM, KK! will pay tribute to women who are making “herstory” (History is for men, right?).


T une in/watch KK! as Dr. Cora Claudio, president, EARTH Institute Asia, converses with visiting South African Producer Ms. Bridget Pickering, co-producer of Hotel Rwanda, the Terry George Oscar™ nominated feature film, and Dr. Cynthia Mamon, president and managing director, Sun Microsystems Philippines, Inc. and vice president, Enchanted Kingdom, Inc.


During the program, KK!  will try to run a brief audio-video clip from the film “Courting Justice” which Ms. Pickering produced. The film, which deals with women involved in judicial reform, will be shown in Manila as part of the 19th International Woman’s Film Festival from March 9-11, 2010, at the University of the Philippines Film Institute.


As a bonus, Ms. Pickering will give the audience of KK! a feel of the enthusiasm picking up in South Africa for the first ever football world cup on the African Continent.  The South African Embassy is now working with the Football Federation of the Philippines to promote football as a sport. Will it include women, too? Hear from KK!


KK! Is accessible through DZRH-AM radio (666 in Metro Manila, other kHz nationwide), TV (Ch. 9 in Metro Manila, other cable TV channels nationwide), and Internet or ( Join the Quiz, contests, campaigns and projects of EARTH and KK! To join all, register at 2299: earth<space>your message.
