Why is corazon aquino the first female pres. of the philipines ?
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.

I won't be voting in the 2016 election, as all the candidates who did seem to have good sense lost, and the two vying for office... Don't seem to be very bright... But aside from that, it feels like a set up, as a means to manipulate history. Neither is doing anything to breed confidence, and feels...

Why are Clinton and Trump the front runners this election year?I'm baffled. According to polls, 70% of Americans say we are headed in the wrong direction. Yet, we have Clinton ahead in the Democratic primary. More over, on the GOP side, this was supposed to be the year of the people against the...

Why are men calling women "female" instead of women? Does this bother anyone else?I was speaking to a "male" associate and he said the "female" he worked with is not pulling her own weight. When your referring to one women, why not call her a "woman"? Am I...
