PRES. DUTERTE EXPLAINS CONTROVERSIAL STATEMENT ON WOMEN



President Rodrigo Duterte's recent controversial statement saying that the next chief justice should not be a woman drew flak from women activists, prompting them to launch the #BabaeAko movement.

Among personalities who joined in the campaign include former Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) Secretary Judy Taguiwalo and Mae Paner.

The Chief Executive, during his speech at the inauguration of a bridge project in Davao City on Thursday, has explained his previous remarks.

The President also explained how men are used to brawls and fights since childhood.

Earlier, Malacañang has already defended the President, citing the chief executive's appointment of women on his cabinet.

With this as proof, Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque denied allegations of discrimination against Duterte.
