    At 9:30 am, the Vice President went to the Federation of Asia Pacific Women Association’s (FAWA) 60thAnniversary and 23rdConvention in Hotel Jen, Pasay City. FAWA was created in 1958 by the late Geronima T. Pecson, one of the noted figures of National Federation of Women’s Club (NFWC) of the Philippines. It urged the NFWC to undertake the unification of Asian women for the progress of Asia and the protection of the ideals of freedom and justice, contributing to world effort to building lasting peace. The aim was to create opportunities for women to get together and discuss problems, which affect Asian countries and communities, and to try and find solutions to these problems.

    In her speech, the Vice President discussed the increasing complexity of gender issues women continue to face all over the world, especially in developing countries. She emphasized that in order for women to feel empowered, there must be a concerted effort to include women as part of the solution.

    “Gatherings like these have an important role to play in creating effective, innovative, and long-term solutions for our programs. If we are going to capitalize on the potential of women as key drivers of sustainable growth and longlasting peace in the region, we need a shared vision and shared strategies to move us forward. And then, we need to actually move forward, at some point moving beyond words into real actions that benefit women around the country.”

    At 1:00 pm, the Vice President also attended the 31stAnnual UP Pi Sigma Fraternity Open Debate Tournament in UPIS High School Building, Quezon City.

    In her message, the Vice President mentioned the importance of the ability to listen to all points of view even in arguments through empathy. “Looking back, the discipline that was instilled in me while I was going through all those rigors is the same discipline that is making me through all the difficult times. Kaya my advice to everyone is: Enjoy the ride, enjoy all the difficulties, but you have to, you know, it’s not just the excitement. It’s not capability per se, but it’s empathy that you get from all the debates that will happen.”
