Vice President of the Philippines
Vice President Maria Leonor “Leni” Gerona Robredo was initially known to the public as the widow of the late Jesse Robredo – the beloved Mayor of Naga City and former Secretary of the Department of Interior and Local Government.
A staunch advocate of human rights, she devoted her entire professional life in the service of the most vulnerable sectors of Philippine society.
She served as a Public Attorney and is a member of the alternative lawyers group SALIGAN. After winning a seat in the Sixteenth Congress, she remained constant in her priority attention to farmers and fisherfolk; women, particularly in oppressive circumstances; and indigenous people.
“Iisa ang mukha ng gutom at kahirapan kaya pwedeng pag-isahin ang laban sa pareho. Mula sa sakahan hanggang sa mesa, tutustusan ang mga pangangailangan.”
“Panahon nang bigyan ng pagtuon ang mga probinsya. Pag may desenteng trabaho at pagkakataong umasenso sakanayunan, hindi na kailangang mawalay sa pamilya at makipagsiksikan sa siyudad. Pati mga problema at traffic sa Metro Manila at mga siyudad, maiibsan.”
“Matagal akong manananggol ng kababaihang biktima ng karahasan at humihingi ng pagkakapantay-pantay.Susi ang bigyan sila ng sariling kakayahang magtaguyod ng kanilang pamilya.”
