To celebrate International Women's Day, the UN Women Safe Cities Metro Manila Programme are organizing a concert and inter-school battle of the bands entitled,  “Breaking the Silence: Towards a Safe and Violence-Free Public Spaces for Women and Girls.”

The competition aims to convey the message that sexual harassment is an everyday battle for women and girls.

Last December, local musicians came together to push for Safe Spaces in the music community.
