Fantastic Filipinas—International Women’s Month 2024

This international women’s month, we honor the extraordinary legacies of Dr. Fe Del Mundo and Dr. Maria Orosa, two exceptional Filipina pioneers who have left an indelible mark on Philippine society. Their achievements and innovations are a testament to the resourcefulness, intelligence, and tenacity of Filipina women, whose contributions remain relevant and in practice today.

May we follow in their footsteps and let compassion lead the way to greatness.

We continue our celebration of International Women’s Month by remembering the contributions of Pura Villanueva Kalaw and Josefa Llanes Escoda. Their tireless advocacy for women’s rights and empowerment has had an enduring impact in the country to this day.

Let us sustain their efforts by being good leaders in our fields of influence and ensuring that all sectors of society are able to assert themselves in ways that embody the principles of a true democracy.
