NOTE FROM THE PUBLISHER

Women have historically been relegated to the background, often labeled as the weaker gender. Thanks to the women’s liberation movement that began in the 1960s, a major transformation happened initially in the wealthier countries. Today, they have gone a long way in making themselves a force to reckon with even in developing nations such as the Philippines.
 
In politics, the Philippines has been led by two female presidents. The late Corazon C. Aquino was the first woman to hold the office following the bloodless People Power revolt in 1986 that toppled the Marcos regime, and was the first female head of state in the region. She was followed by Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, who held the post for nine years from 2001 to 2010.
 
While men remain the head of the household, the country is in reality a matriarchal society. From tending the households, intellectual Filipino women have stepped up to the challenge and taken up seats in the once men-only corporate boardroom, competing for their rights for equality.
 
A recent Asian Development Bank (ADB) study on gender equality in the Asia-Pacific labor market cites the Philippines as having a proud tradition of gender advancement. “It was one of the first republics in Asia
to grant women’s suffrage and has ratified several international agreements” advancing women’s rights, the ADB points out. In 1987, the government adopted a constitution that legislatively affirmed women’s equality with men.
 
This issue delves into the journey of some Filipino women in government service and corporate finance, the hardships and roadblocks they had to overcome and how they grabbed opportunities to rise to the top.
