WAGI, Sanggu hold MC Girls’ Challenge

WAGI, Sanggu hold MC Girls’ Challenge

The Women and Gender Institute (WAGI) in partnership with the Sanggunian ng mga Mag-aaral ng Miriam, Communication Department, and the International Studies Department held a forum titled “Strong Man Then, Strong Man Now: The MC Girls’ Challenge”. It was held last April 23  at the SMT Building.

Maryknoll/Miriam College alumna and respected journalist Jo-Ann Maglipon, was the guest speaker for the activity. She shared her struggles and experience as a journalist during the Marcos administration which led to her eventual arrest and imprisonment.

In her talk, Maglipon pointed out the alarming similarities between the Marcos and the Duterte administrations such as the loss of democratic values, the rise of authoritarianism, the control of media, and the use of violence to achieve a new order.

The forum aimed to challenge our young MC women to be critical and vocal of this rise of authoritarianism and the so called “strong man” leadership and find innovative ways to assert non-violent feminist approaches to uphold democracy and human rights.
