BAGUIO CITY: Presidential Communication Operations Office (PCOO) Assistant Secretary Catherine Jonne Liciudine Dalen inspired the lady inmates and the lady jail guards and officials of the Bureau of Jail Management and Penology to empower themselves in her talk at the Baguio City Jail recently in line with the celebration of Women’s Month. Dalen in her lecture on gender and development and the equality and equity of women and men, talked on how the lady inmates could be empowered even inside their prison cells in recognition of women as significant and productive members of society. She said it is important to make sure that the women inmates will still be productive and active inside the jail and when they are released from prison. “Hindi porke nasa loob sila ng kulungan hindi na natin sila bibigyan ng pansin,” said Dalen. She cited the inmates while inside the prison are actively performing tasks for their livelihood like making different decorations and accessories out of indigenous and recycled materials which are available inside the city jail.
