Women and Men Handbook

The Women and Men (WAM) Handbook of Ilocos Region presents the updated and relevant sex-disaggregated information, that serves as a guide in advocacy work geared towards women’s welfare and advancement in the various sectors of society. It provides information on women related to such areas as violence, migration, and peace and human rights, which have not been given focus in traditional statistical publications, but critical to improving the status of women.
The WAM Handbook also contains statistical facts on the situation of Filipino women relative to that of their male counterparts in the areas of population and families, work, economic participation, agriculture, education, health and nutrition, social welfare, public life, migration, peace and human rights, violence against women and children, and environment.
