Women in the Philippines

Tuesday, 10 May 2022 - 8:30am to 9:00am

As of broadcasting, polling has closed in the Philippines Presidential election campaign, and Ferdinand ‘Bongbong” Marcos has a healthy lead. No doubt he will win by a landslide, as has been predicted.  In the coming weeks and months on Accent of Women, we will cover the impact and consequences of this election win on democracy, workers rights, the rights of women and young people, climate justice and of course the broader civil rights movement. But for today, I will play our show from the 15th March when we spoke to  Kristine Lawrence, the Secretary of Gabriela Australia, about the situation in the Philippines for women, and the broader politics surrounding this election campaign.

Tuesday 8:30am to 9:00am
A program by and about women from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds. Distributed nationally on the Community Radio Network.
