    Vice President Leni Robredo Message at the Basilan Women Executives and Legislators (BWEL) Summit, Isabela City, Basilan

    Vice President Leni Robredo Message at the Basilan Women Executives and Legislators (BWEL) Summit, Isabela City, Basilan

    [START 00:00:02]

    VP LENI: Bago po ako magpatuloy, siyempre ang aking pagbigay-galang, Mayor Dadah, Mayor Nerwelyn, 'yung councilors who are present, our Congressman, Congressman Amie of AMIN Partylist, all the barangay officials, department heads, all the women who are present this morning, maraming maraming salamat po for giving us an opportunity to see you and to congratulate all the women awardees ngayong umaga.

    Para po sa akin, very symbolic 'yung okasyon ninyo dahil talagang 'yung kuwento ng mga kababaihan have to be told and retold many times over. Kahit po maganda na 'yung ating, you know, we have been performing very well as far as gender equality is concerned, compared to some other countries, pero we have to admit na very patriarchal pa din 'yung ating society. Ramdam na ramdam ko po 'yun as a public servant, I am sure kayo din, na tayo we have to prove ourselves many times over bago ma-appreciate 'yung klase ng trabahong ginagawa natin. And sa akin pong palagay nag uumpisa kasi ito sa bahay. 'Di ba sa bahay 'yung role ng mga nanay saka mga asawa, very much taken for granted in the sense na we do all the work, we multitask, pero parating under appreciated 'yung mga kababaihan. And itong kinalakihan nating ito, nadadala natin sa community, na marami pa din 'yung ang pagtingin sa babae, second class citizens, marami pa din 'yung ang pagtingin, kailangan lang tayong i-celebrate during Women's Month. And ang pinaka-pangarap ko po para sa atin na hindi na natin kinakailangan mag celebrate ng Women's Day kasi everyday of our lives, women are already valued in the manner that we deserve.

    So, gusto ko po kayong i-congratulate for coming up with this event and having a nine-point agenda. Kasi paniniwala ko, when women work together, mas malakas 'yung loob natin, mas napapansin tayo dahil magkakasama tayo, mas nabibigyan tayo ng pansin dahil nakikita kung gaano din kalakas 'yung ating samahan. Parati pong– may isa pong kasabihan na pag tinulungan mo ang isang babae, parang tinulungan mo na din 'yung buong community, dahil ang isang babaeng tinutulungan, tinutulungan niya din lahat. And I think, we, women should keep doing that. Hindi tayo– hindi nag-iinggitan, dapat we should always honor, treasure each other dahil tayo tayo lang naman 'yung magkakasama in the end.

    So, maraming salamat po. Congratulations to all the women who will be awarded this morning. Your stories should inspire others, should keep the faith, na 'yung mga kababaihan, hindi lang natin kailangan i-prove na malakas tayo pero na 'yung mga kasama natin na-aappreciate 'yung kalakasan natin. Hihingi lang po ako ng paumanhin, we would have wanted to stay longer pero kinakailangan po namin, sina Senator Kiko, umalis kaagad even before the event is done kasi po papunta kami ng Sindangan, Zamboanga del Norte and hinihintay na po kami ng isang grupo doon. Pero please be assured that I am one with you every step of the way. Andito lang po ako whenever I can be of help to all of you. Maraming salamat po. Happy women's day ulit sa lahat and congratulations.
