The presentation of Judge Balmaceda started with video clips on “Bawal sa Batas” illustrating examples of the different kinds of abuses/violence against women and their children, including physical abuse, psychological abuse, emotional sexual abuse, and economic abuse. She used these as take-off points in discussing salient points of Republic Act No. 9262 or “An Act Defining Violence Against Women And Their Children, Providing For Protective Measures For Victims, Prescribing Penalties Therefore, And For Other Purposes”, also known as the “Anti-Violence Against Women And Their Children Act of 2004”.

Judge Balmaceda underscored the need for everyone “…not to be indifferent…”, to address incidents of VAWC in the neighborhood, by responding or reporting it to stop the “cycle of violence”. She also elaborated on how one may secure a Protection Order from the Barangay or the Family Court, whichever is appropriate. Followed by a lively open forum, she summed up with a message towards the need for vigilance and women empowerment. This is the last GAD-related program for 2014 for PRC Region 6.
