Just because you are a woman doesn't mean you can no longer be brave nor be helpful.

A serene night for all of us. I felt like I want to write something that is about the bravery of women for this moment. But this time, allow me to write it in Taglish or a combination of Filipino and English. Gusto ko rin kasing ipagmalaki ang sarili nating wika. Walang halong biro pero minsan kasi parang nakakalimutan ko nang magsulat gamit ang wikang Filipino.


Let us start portraying the bravery of women with Gabriela Silang.

For those who do not know it yet, Gabriela Silang is the Joan of Arc of Ilocos. Nagsilbi siyang ehemplo ng pagiging matapang na babaeng pinuno sa ‘independence movement’ ng mga Ilocano laban sa kolonyalismong Espanyol. Courage runs in her blood. She is a feisty and fearless female leader. Historically, She was hanged in Vigan's central plaza, on September 20, 1763, causing her death.


We also have Melchora Aquino.

Melchora Aquino is known as "Tandang Sora." She is also regarded as the "Mother of the Philippine Revolution." May malaki siyang ambag sa rebolusyon lalo na sa pagdedesisyon para sa Katipunan. In fact, siya ang kumupkop sa mga rebolusyonaryong may sakit at sugatan mula sa kanlungang kaniyang ipinatayo. Here is a cool fact,

she was already eighty-four when the Philippine Revolution broke out in the year 1896. Mapapatunayan rin natin dito na ang katapangan ay walang kinikilalang edad. Bata man o matanda, pwede kang paging bayani.


Internationally speaking, we also have Elizabeth Cady Stanton.

Elizabeth Cady Stanton was known as an American, a writer, as well as, a leader who led the movement women's rights in the United States during the timeline of mid-to-late-1800s. Kilala siya sa kaniyang pagpupursige na baguhin ang mga karapatan ng kababaihan sa buong mundo. Ang kanyang hindi matitinag na determinasyon ay nagresulta sa ika-19 na pagbabago sa Konstitusyon ng Amerika. At dahil dito, nabigyan ang mga kababaihan ng karapatang bumoto. Ito ay isang bagay na talaga namang nagbigay ng pagbabago.


Dumako naman tayo ngayon sa mga kababaihan na nagpamalas ng kanilang katalinuhan, pagiging maaasahan at pagiging matulungin. Ang aking babanggitin ay ilan lamang sa napakaraming bilang ng mga babaeng magigiting.


Let us start with the local women, and on the list is Leona Florentino.

Leona Florentino came from a rich and well-known family in Vigan. She was known for being a poet both in Ilocano and Spanish language. She is deemed the "bridge from oral to literary tradition." and also the "mother of Philippine women's literature" Not only that, maliban sa pagiging ina ng panitikan ng kababaihan ng Pilipinas, siya rin ay isang haligi ng peminismo sa bansa.


Speaking of feminism, we have Katharine Hepburn.

Si Katharine Hepburn naman ay isa sa mga taong sumusuporta ng femenismo noong ika-20 siglo na nakilala rin sa kaniyang mga pelikula na kung saan ay naipamalas niya ang kaniyang pagiging pemenista maging sa totoong buhay.


In line with food, we have Maria Orosa.

She was a pharmaceutical chemist, a war heroine, a humanitarian, and also a food technologist. Siya lang naman ang nakaimbento ng isa sa ating pinakapaboritong sauce na kung tawagin ay Banana Ketchup. Marami pang ibang pagkain ang naimbento niya na naging isang paraan din para mapayabong ang pagkain sa Pilipinas lalo na noong panahon ng mga hapon.


Last but certainly not the least, we have Doña Marcela Marino de Agoncillo.

Renowned in the Philippines, Doña Marcela Marino de Agoncillo is a Filipina who made history by being the head tailor of the first and official flag of our humble country-the Republic of the Philippines. Siya lang naman ang nagtahi sa watawat ng Pilipinas sa tulong na rin ng kaniyang dalawang anak na sina Lorenza at Delfina Herbosa Natividad. With this, she was deemed as "Mother of the Philippine Flag."


Closing Ideas

Men aren't just the most vital individuals in the world nor the bravest ones. Women can also do the same things as men. In short, anyone can be courageous no matter how they look and no matter what your age is. Because bravery knows no gender and age. Ako, ikaw, lahat tayo ay taglay ang paging matapang.
