"Kung mapapansin mo, sa lahat ng mga leader sa bansa natin... 'yung pagiging opinionated [or having] strong personality, ito 'yung mga personalities or traits, behaviors na nakikita natin sa mga kalalakihan na gusto natin maging leader. Pero pagdating sa kababaihan ay hindi natin gusto.
"Hindi 'to issue kung ano 'yung kayang gawin ng mga kababaihan, kung hindi 'yung kultura na natin. Merong stigma. Ito 'yung mga namana na natin unconsciously sa mga ninuno pa natin, sa society, sa kultura natin, kung papaano ba 'to talaga ang behavior ng isang kababaihan. Tapos kapag hindi ka nag-conform doon, 'pag hindi ka sweet, 'pag hindi ka soft, 'pag hindi ka caring, 'pag hindi ka tahimik, 'pag hindi ka mahinhin, 'pag hindi ka masunurin sa asawa mo, 'pag hindi ka, 'yes, sir, yes, sir' lang, hindi ka na 'likeable.’
