PSSupt. Fama, an advocate of women's rights and empowerment, was among those present during the culminating activity of the Women's Month Celebration.
The participating units include Police Regional Office 5 (PRO5), Regional Special Training Unit 5 (RSTU5), Regional Training Center 5 (RTC5), Non-Uniformed Personnel (NUP) of PRO5, and the Police Offices of Naga City, Albay, Camarines Sur, Camarines Norte, Catanduanes, Masbate, and Sorsogon.
The board of judges was composed of Mrs. Marliza Clidoro Deona, wife of PRO 5 Regional Director; Mrs. Aida Alcazar Naz, Officer-in-Charge of Philippine Information Agency-Legazpi City; Dr. Ma. Gianeli Q. Besaña, NAPOLCOM Provincial Office Albay Administrative Officer; and Ms. Jane Nuyda, owner of Teatro de Artes.
The criteria for judging included synchronization, creativity, choreography and formation, overall performance, costume, and presentation.
This year’s celebration aims to pay tribute to all women leaders who passionately lead and continue to advance women’s advocacies. It also seeks to highlight the key roles and accomplishments of women in leadership, power, and decision-making. This is to influence and break the conservative mindset and belief that politics and leadership are not for women.
