“The Filipino woman is the equal of the best in the world and there is no reason why she should not enjoy all the rights and privileges of women in more progressive countries.”
Prior to the plebiscite, President Manuel L. Quezon reiterated his desire for the approval of women’s suffrage in a speech broadcast from Washington, D.C. on April 4, 1937.
Among the avid listeners were Mrs. Vicente Lim and Mrs. Josefa Llanes-Escoda (BOTTOM PHOTO, LOWER PANEL), both listening to the broadcast from their own homes.

i thought it was cute and then i realised what was on the tv and i melted
this is how our characters/writing system looked like during the pre-colonization era.
now, we use the alphabets. but i’d still prefer Baybayin over the alphabets to be quite honest.
i’m not 100% sure though if i’ve followed the rules correctly but it isn’t really that difficult to learn Baybayin.
No, Baybayin is an alpha syllabary it is comprised of phonetic characters not like an alphabet ABCD. It is not meant to write English words with the exception of names and place names. Would you write those words in Japanese Kanji if you could write Kanji? No you wouldn’t, you would write the Japanese words and then write in Kanji. He same rules apply to Baybayin. It is a writing system the reflects the spoken native language. Using it to write English bastardizes the writing system. Pass this information on.
well that made a lot of sense. thank you for the enlightenment, man. i stand corrected. terribly sorry for bastardizing such a beautiful writing system. so there you go guys, Baybayin is exclusively for the Filipino language. :)
PCCI announces maiden voyage of Philippines-Indonesia RO-RO service
MANILA — The country’s first roll-on-roll off (RO-RO) service to neighboring ASEAN country Indonesia will start sailing mid year with the establishment of the Davao - General Santos/ Bitung, Indonesia route, the Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industries (PCCI) announced on Friday.
“The private sector has taken the lead in spearheading the implementation of the project through a bilateral arrangement between the business sector of the Philippines and Indonesia,” PCCI President Miguel Varela said.
The Davao-Bitung Ro-Ro project was made possible with the signing of a Memorandum of Cooperation between the Davao City and Manado Chambers of Commerce and Industry during the Davao Investment Forum in November last year, Varela said.
“The initiative is a milestone in improving ASEAN connectivity and in expanding trade, tourism and investments in the BIMP-EAGA area,” he explained.
At the same time, Mr. Varela announced that he and ASEAN Business Advisory Council (ABAC)-Philippines member Jay Yuvallos met with Trade and Industry (DTI) Secretary Gregory L. Domingo to discuss the launching of the project which will be highlighted with the maiden voyage of the Super Shuttle Ro-Ro from Davao City to Bitung, Indonesia.
Domingo welcomed the initiative and assured the group of the government’s full support. “Definitely we want to pursue a more strategic economic relationship with Indonesia,” Domingo said, adding that Davao City is a good location for becoming the transshipment hub in Asia.
Based on a study conducted by Research Education and Institutional Development (REID) Foundation, there is a thriving trade between Mindanao and North Sulawesi that would significantly benefit from the project.
The study noted that the transport costs will be reduced by about five to 10 percent compared on shipping the commercial goods through wooden vessels and the transportation time will also be cut from two-three days to at least one- day-and-a-half.
North Sulawesi’s (Indonesia) exports to the Philippines in 2010 were worth USD6,844,728.42. The commodities include crude coconut oil, copra, desiccated coconut, crude palm oil, coconut charcoal and frozen fish. Its top imports from the Philippines in the same year had a combined worth of USD147,932,133.56. These comprised of capital goods, raw materials and consumption goods.
Also present at the meeting were Donald Dee, PCCI Vice Chairman; Gil Gonzales, representing ABAC member Tessie Sy-Coson; Danilo Lim, President, Davao City Chamber of Commerce and Industry (DCCCI); John Gaisano, DCCCI Chairman; Bill Luz, National Competitiveness Council (NCC) Co-Chairman for Private Sector; Meneleo Carlos, NCC Private Sector Co-Champion for Transport Infrastructure; Dr. Henry Basilio, President, REID Foundation and Chairman PCCI Committee for Transport Infrastructure; Paul Rodriguez, President, Asian Marine Transport Corporation (AMTC); Emma Mejares, Executive Director, Export Development Council (EDC) and Cora Curay and Pierre Carlos Curay, Supply Chain Management Association of the Philippines (SCMAP).
On the part of the government, Domingo was joined by newly appointed DTI Undersecretary Ponciano Manalo, DOTC Undersecretary Timmy Limcaoco, DTI-Bureau of Export Trade Promotion (BETP) Executive Director Senen Perlada, DTI-BOI Executive Director Pie Reyes and Randy Arquiza of the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA).
The group believed that this initiative will be a milestone in the implementation of the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) 2015 which President Aquino could report at the ASEAN Leaders Summit in Brunei Darussalam this month. (PNA)
