She's the first woman-president of the Philippines because she was the first to have won the election. Millions of people claimed she was the 'real winner' of the snap election on 1986. That lead to the people power..and ended Marcos regime. By that, Corazon Aquino became an icon of democracy and TIME Magazine named her as the 'Woman of the Year' on 1986. There are really other smart and worthy women like Cory who tried running for president like Mirriam Defensor Santiago, Loren Legarda, Glorai Macapagal Arroyo and many others but only Arroyo was lucky to be president after Erap's impeachment and after winning another election. The thing is, any woman could win if any woman deserves to win.
