What the gov’t is missing in helping women survive violence

On November 7, the Davao City Council passed on third and final reading on Tuesday, November 7 an ordinance establishing violence against women (VAW) desk and protocol in handling VAW cases at the barangay level.
Establishing a VAW desk in barangay is not new since the Implementing Rules and Regulations of the Magna Carta of Women under Republic Act 9710 already provides for its establishment in every barangay.
