April 12, 2024 – The Aurora State College of Technology concluded it’s month-long celebration of National Women’s Month organized by the ASCOT Gender and Development Unit.

The activity commenced with a welcome message delivered by Malou C. Angara, Dean of the School of Arts and Sciences and member of the GAD Focal Point System. “Ang mga kababaihan na lumalaban sa buhay. A true ally of all women in this world are men.
