Women lighted torches to commemorate women’s day
and vowed to work for real change and women’s emancipation!


Women participants gathered in front of the Sto. Domingo Church highlighting the 100th year women’s day celebration for a march rally. The group estimated to be a thousand articulated their issues of concern in the context of the upcoming 2010 elections. The group belonging to the newly formed BKP (Bukluran ng Kababaihan para sa Pagbabago) challenged all the candidates to make a stand on issues affecting their plight. The group mostly came from Partido Lakas ng Masa, Sanlakas and some allied organizations in various sectors.

The group questioned the inability of the GMA administration to further advance the interests of Filipino women who bear the brunt of the crisis, a far cry from the purported allegations of growth where it only benefited the rich and continually deprived the marginalized poor. For over 92M population now, around 30% or roughly 30M living in a measly over P1,200.00 a month. Last year’s data showed that the inflation rate was pegged at 20.3% compared to the 11.4 % posted in 2000, a year before the ascendancy of the GMA administration.

“The failure to pass the RH Bill is tantamount of killing our basic right to live with dignity and respect and we deplore the very fact that no one among the present crop of those running for President capable of easing our burden and hardships.” Portia Ariesgado, BKP spokesperson lamented in an interview.

“Not one single candidate concretely spelled out programs to alleviate poverty and what is heartening to the public is that all of them are in unison in pursuing their platforms in motherhood statements and propaganda.” Ariesgado further elaborated.

The marchers proceeded to Welcome Rotunda and held a program where various speakers lambasted major issues confronting the plight of women. Among the issues that were ventilated were the following: high prices of commodities, social services, poverty, domestic violence and related women’s issues.

As a culmination of their program, the group lighted torches symbolizing their adherence for social change and women’s liberation. ###
