Philippine Women’s College (now Philippine Women’s University) was founded in 1919 in Manila by visionary couple, statesman Dean Conrado Benitez and educator Francisca Tirona Benitez.

Over the decades, their vision of women’s education transcended the boundaries of the capital city of Manila and reached the far south of the archipelago.

Mindanawon PWC alumni later saw the need to spread and promote the educational objectives of their alma mater to the young people of Mindanao. This became a reality when the PWU Board of Trustees approved the plan to establish the Philippine Women’s College of Davao, which eventually opened its doors to Dabawenyo students in 1953.

Through the years, PWC has become an incubator of leaders in politics, business, philanthropy, arts, and culture.

The Madayaw, PhilWomenians! art exhibit is open to the public until February 27.
