What we do

GABRIELA, the General Assembly Binding women for Reforms, Integrity, Equality, Leadership and Action, is a grassroots-based alliance of more than 200 organizations of women in the Philippines and with 8 chapters around the world. We organize women especially from the sectors of farmers, workers, urban poor, and youth.

Since its establishment in 1984, GABRIELA vigorously campaigns on sectoral issues such as women’s rights, gender discrimination, violence against women, and sexual and reproductive health. Similarly,

GABRIELA is also involved in national and international issues that perpetuate the structures of our oppression and subjugation, like the onslaught of neoliberalism.

At the same time, GABRIELA provides psychosocial and legal counseling, visits women political detainees and campaigns for their release, and conducts relief missions whenever there are disasters.
