Rabiya Mateo recently aired being not in favor of President Rodrigo Duterte’s earlier remark about women as a country’s leader.
On February 13, the current Miss Universe Philippines joined Missosology on their online show “Beauty Talks” where she was asked about her thoughts on the President’s statement that the presidency was no job for women because of emotional differences to men.
“Well, I do respect the President, but I completely disagree with his thought,” Rabiya answered.
“I won't agree with something like this because I know my capabilities and strengths as a woman. And I know that I can make a difference, so much difference.”
The beauty queen likewise added that emotion is also vital in leadership.
“We need female leaders, leaders who will put their emotions in making decisions. Because it's not all about the experience, sometimes you really need to put your emotions and be the mother of your country.”
Here's Missosology's interview with Rabiya. Discussion about Duterte's remark begins at 1:04:20 mark of this video:
Celebrities like Angelica Panganiban, Karen Davila and Agot Isidro also contradicted the said statement. Duterte aired the said remark during the inauguration of Skyway 3 last month where he addressed claims that his daughter, Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte, will run for the presidency in 2022 election.
In an earlier report by KAMI, he revealed that his daughter will not be running for the presidency in 2022. He mentioned that he discouraged her daughter from running because of how tough it is up there.
Pres. Rodrigo Duterte was succeeded by her daughter as the mayor of Davao City. He was 71-years old when he started his term as the President of the Philippines.
