The Republic Act 9710 is a comprehensive women’s human rights law. One of its features is the protection of women from all forms of violence. As part of UP Mindanao’s observance of the 18-day campaign to end Violence Against Women (VAW), we invited Atty. Romeo T. Cabarde, Jr. to give an orientation of the RA 9710 or Magna Carta of Women. Knowing your basic rights and responsibilities is the key to ending VAW.
