Why this petition matters

Started by Leigh Anne Matibag

Women are women, not just women.

Many people nowadays are live with discrimination, especially women. This topic is to live with equality or live free from violence and discrimination; to enjoy the highest attainable standard of physical and mental health; to be educated; to own property; to vote, and to learn about equality.

In comparison to many other countries, the Philippines has a well-evolved position on women's rights. Over the last century, significant changes have occurred that have resulted in greater acceptance and protection of fundamental rights. Women's movements, an increase in the number of female political representatives, an increase in the number of educated women, greater clarity on women's issues in legislation, and the targeted application of those laws all contributed to the development toward gender equality. The Philippine government has tackled women's rights through a variety of legislative schemes in recent years, including workplace discrimination, domestic violence, sexual harassment, and human trafficking.

Every woman should have the freedom to make her choices and to have rights. Women and girls are still denied them in every region of the world, just because they are women. Women's movements have the power to change this. And we can be all part of the change. We, women, can raise our voices, volunteer with women's rights organizations, start fundraisers, attend marches and protests. Don't be a slave to everyone. Be ourselves, be a woman of this community, be a woman in yourself.

I did this to raise our voices. Be one of us that raising the voice of women.
