Bataan 1st District Representative Geraldine Roman said the fight for gender equality in the country is a step by step process.

On Saturday, the politiko said her ultimate goal is to effect change little by little to pave the way for the passage of the Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity and Expression (SOGIE) Equality Bill.

“I look at the SOGIE Equality Bill as a tangible proof of that change. For the bill to have made it through the House after years of languishing in Congress, many steps had to be taken, and I know that others might have considered those steps as compromised,” said Roman.

“We have not sacrificed integrity nor principles for the end result, and we will continue to make an effort to find common ground with our colleagues so that we can finally make the SOGIE Equality Bill a law. In unity, we have strength. Together, we can achieve our goals,” she added.

Our ultimate goal, basically, would be this: to effect change little by little, by taking steps to negotiate with skeptics of the bill and even opening up to the bill's fiercest critics. I believe that the only way we can effect change in this country is by working together, even if we belong to different political parties and have different views. I look at the SOGIE Equality Bill as a tangible proof of that change.

In unity, we have strength. Together, we can achieve our goals. (Photos: Bethina Farin, DLSU @b.ethina)
