To honor the Women Suffragist Movement and celebrate women’s participation in politics and governance, the Barangay Bayan Governance Consortium and the Institute of Politics and Governance (IPG) are honoring 10 women with the 2007 Bayani Citation. The Bayani Citation is conferred to great women who have gone beyond the suffragist movement to bring forth transformative power. The awarding ceremonies held at the Club Filipino yesterday. Leading the list of awardees was Mayor Vilma Santos-Recto, for her admirable effort to redefine herself from being a star for all seasons to a mayor for all seasons, performing exceptionally well in public administration and meritoriously in delivering education and health services. Congrats to Ate Vi who has given her diehard Vilmanians another reason to crow about and be proud of her. She’s the only actress-turned-politician who was given this kind of honor and even her showbiz colleagues should be proud of her. – ABS-CBN, April 2007 (READ MORE)
