Section 19 of the Magna Carta of Women (MCW) or the R. A. 9710 clearly states that the portrayal of women in a discriminatory, demeaning and/or derogatory manner in advertisements, shows and programs is not allowed. Women should always be portrayed and represented with dignity. Under this Act, your government is duly accountable in fulfilling the State obligations as described by law.
The entertainment at a Liberal Party oath-taking ceremony and attended by government officials presented women as sexual objects. Despite Malacanang (through Secretary Herminio "Sonny" Coloma) and MMDA Chief Francis Tolentino's denial that the women performers were his 'gift' to the host, eyewitness accounts from the media who were present proved otherwise. According to news reports, there were minors in the audience.
This unfortunate but deplorable incident merits an apology from your office as Head of State and as Chair of the Liberal Party on whose name , this event was held.
Government officials. specifically, Secretary Mar Roxas, MMDA Chief Francis Tolentino and Congressman Benjamin Agarao who were present and may have acted either in acquiescence or as purveyors of this deplorable act should be investigated and be held liable if proven guilty.
