Sen. Villar graces Bulacan’s recognition ceremony for outstanding women
Senator Cynthia Villar, who is seeking reelection this May, graced Bulacan’s awarding ceremony last Monday for outstanding women in the province.
In a speech, the politiko stressed how women these days have already been empowered and the limitless opportunities that await them.
“I believe that women have a lot to contribute to the development given the proper opportunities, and that when we empower women, we empower families and generations of people,” Villar said at the event dubbed, “25th Gawad Medalyang Ginto 2019,” which is part of Bulacan’s celebration of the Women’s Month.
Villar noted that women comprise 50 percent of the Philippine population, and more than 50 percent of the overseas Filipino workers.
“More and more Filipino women are taking on influential and leadership roles. At bilang mga empowered women, there are no limitations to what we can do or achieve,” she said.
The provincial government recognized Evelyn Lipana of San Ildefonso as the Natatanging Babae; Rowena Gloriani Clemente of Calumpit as the Matagumpay na Ginang ng OFW; and, Ma. Imelda Bundoc from Pulilan as Matagumpay na Babaeng Makakalikasan.
Milagros Imson of Meycauayan City was cited as the Matagumpay na Babaeng Mangangalakal, and Engr. Relynne Miranda of Baliwag as the Huwarang Kabataang Babae sa Pamumuno.
The Soroptomist International of Mecauayan, headed by Anne Marie Mizuse, was conferred the Natatanging Samahang Pangkababaihan award, while the Konsehong Pambayan para sa Kababaihan ng Calumpit, headed by Rosalina Yanga, was recognized as the Matagumpay na KPK.
“Ang medalyang ginto na ito ay parangal hindi lamang sa mga tatanggap nito, bagkus ay pagkilala sa lahat ng kababaihang Bulakenya at pagtanaw ng utang na loob sa pagmamalasakit sa ating mga mamamayan,” Gov. Wilhelmino Sy-Alvarado said at the event.
“Tila hindi na naaangkop ang taguri sa mga kababaihan bilang mga ilaw ng tahanan, sapagkat sa kasalukuyan, sila rin ay maituturing na matibay na haligi ng pamayanan at saligan ng bawat matiwasay na bayan,” he added.(END)
