Vice President Leni Robredo has called for respect for all women amidst the “widespread” of rape cases across Asia Pacific.
KAMI has learned from ABS-CBN News that VP Robredo attended the 60th anniversary of the Federation of Asia Pacific Women Association in Pasay City.
In her speech, she said that men should always remember to respect women.
“Men should make it their business to respect us, this is why we also know that creating a heritage of lasting peace and sustainable development is impossible if we do not include women as part of the solution,” the Vice President stated.
Robredo also mentioned the Office of the Vice President’s Angat Buhay program that has been helping marginalized people and has been providing livelihood training to all women in Marawi.
“We need to work harder together and much more effectively in ensuring that every woman is ensured to rise above her struggles and freely live out her dreams,” Robredo said.
In addition, Robredo said that the late Senator Geronima Pecson, Philippine’s first woman senator, would be the first one to condemn rape even the jokes made on women.
As previously reported by KAMI, President’s Electoral Tribunal has sided with Robredo’s request to set the 25% shading threshold for recounting of votes for her and former Senator Bongbong Marcos.
