Mindanao Commission on Women
The Mindanao Commission on Women (MCW) was established in 2001 by Muslim, Christian, and indigenous women leaders of Mindanao as a vehicle to influence public policy and public opinion about peace and development.
To advance a clear MINDANAO AGENDA from the women’s perspective and build peaceful and prosperous communities for our families, MCW chose three inter-linked areas of work, namely, peace and multiculturalism, poverty reduction, and politics and governance.
The goal is to secure women’s meaningful participation in the peace process and ensure the inclusion of gender responsive provisions in the GPH-MILFpeace agreement. There can be no sustainable peace without women and the MCW-initiated Women’s Peace Table will ensure the participation of diverse groups of women, especially Moro and indigenous women, in the peace negotiations and other processes.
