[FEATURE] UGH! WATCHASAY: Women on Women’s Issues Told by Women

When it comes to women’s issues, the obvious still warrants repetition: it’s the woman who has the say. ๐˜œ๐˜Ž๐˜! ๐˜ž๐˜ˆ๐˜›๐˜Š๐˜๐˜ˆ๐˜š๐˜ˆ๐˜ : ๐˜ž๐˜ฐ๐˜ฎ๐˜ฆ๐˜ฏ ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฏ ๐˜ž๐˜ฐ๐˜ฎ๐˜ฆ๐˜ฏ’๐˜ด ๐˜๐˜ด๐˜ด๐˜ถ๐˜ฆ๐˜ด ๐˜›๐˜ฐ๐˜ญ๐˜ฅ ๐˜ฃ๐˜บ ๐˜ž๐˜ฐ๐˜ฎ๐˜ฆ๐˜ฏ concludes DAKILA-Active Vistaโ€™s commemoration of National Women’s Month 2022 not with a celebration but with a call to action: listen to her.

In the face of inequality made worse by the pandemic, of backward attitudes and their enablers in positions of power; and in defiance of deep-rooted stigmas towards contraceptives (Hindi ‘yan maka-diyos!), teenage mothers (Batang ina!), safe spaces (Magdamit ka na lang kasi ng maayos!), let us forget what we think we know and lend our ears. This genre-bending mockumentary gives the mic to their many voices: women young and old, wives, mothers, workers who are very often the breadwinnersโ€”because the “haligi ng tahanan” is a woman, too. Their words lead the conversation on their health and freedom, their lives and livelihoods. 

Meanwhile, the rest of us must continue to take a stand for women. ๐˜œ๐˜Ž๐˜! ๐˜ž๐˜ˆ๐˜›๐˜Š๐˜๐˜ˆ๐˜š๐˜ˆ๐˜  also urges us to vote for women’s rights this #Halalan2022: to get to know our candidates and their positions; to examine their track records. Let us vote forโ€”and let us beโ€”genuine champions for women.
