Gabriela to bring women’s voices in Congress ‘as counterpoint to traditional macho politics’
By Billy Begas
Gabriela party-list Rep. Arlene Brosas took her oath before Quezon City Mayor Joy Belmonte today, June 20.
“We steadfastly commit to the task of bringing the wide array of women’s voices into Congress as counterpoint to traditional macho politics. Patuloy nating ipaglalaban ang mga kahilingan ng mga kababaihan lalo sa ilalim ng rehimeng Marcos-Duterte,” Brosas said.
Brosas thanked Belmonte for administering her oath of office on her third consecutive term as representative of Gabriela.
She also took note of Belmonte’s commendable record for piloting gender-fair and pro-women ordinances.
“We will touch base with the widest women, LGBT, and children’s rights constituencies in keeping with our reputation as the sole women’s party-list in Congress,” Brosas added.
Gabriela received over 423,000 votes in the 2022 elections securing one seat.
