WOMEN AND GENDER INSTITUTE

 

The Women and Gender Institute (WAGI) is Miriam College’s specialized center for research, training, and advocacy on women’s rights, gender equality and non-sexist learning in support of the leadership of young women and students.
WAGI is a Filipino word, which means “win” in English. The term epitomizes the long term objective of the Women and Gender Institute, which is to achieve women’s empowerment and gender equality in society as this will, in the end, result in a win-win situation for both women and men.
