FVR Cites Role of Women in Nation's History & Dev't


Former President Fidel V. Ramos yesterday cited the role of women in the countrys progress as the centennial of the Philippine feminist movement is marked today at the National Federation of Womens Clubs building in Ermita, Manila, and on Jan. 6 at the Manila Hotel.

"The Filipino women have gone a long way from being merely in the shadows of men, to exercising suffrage and eventually being elected as top officials and appointed as top leaders of the country," the former President said.

The year-long celebration will focus on the role of Filipino women in the progress and development of the country during the last 100 years, he said.

A historical marker on the centennial of the late Angela Valdez Ramos, a woman leader and mother of the former President, will be unveiled today at the NFWC building on Josefa Escoda St. corner San Marcelino St. in Ermita, Manila.

This will mark the start of the year-long celebration of the centennial of the Filipino feminist movement, along with the unveiling of another marker on the feminist movement in the building.

A biography on the mother of President Ramos entitled "In a Class of Her Own: The Life and Times of Angela Valdez Ramos" authored by Melandrew T. Velasco of the Manila Bulletin, produced by the Ramos Foundation for Peace and Development, Inc., and the Media Touchstone Ventures, Inc., will also be launched.

At the Manila Hotel at 12 noon on Thursday, President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo will be the special guest and keynote speaker in a program under the auspices of the National Commission on the Centennial Celebration of the Feminist Movement (NCCCFM) and the National Commission on the Role of Filipino Women (NCRFW).

President Arroyo has issued Presidential Proclamation No. 622 declaring the entire 2005 as the year-long celebration of the centennial of the feminist movement in the Philippines.
