Sen. Risa Hontiveros has always been a staunch advocate of women’s rights. Amid sexism and misogynistic remarks in the country, the senator is pushing for three bills to enhance the protection of women.
“It’s time to interrupt and end the culture of rape and male sexual violence. We will bring the fight to our very homes, workplaces and the internet. We will give no quarter to misogyny and sexism,” Sen. Hontiveros writes.
Meanwhile, questions were raised about the bills’ intentions. Some comments on Sen. Hontiveros’ Facebook page ask if this’ll be biased toward women’s needs. It’s also important to note that mostly men asked this.
