Malacañang welcomed the Philippines’ number one rank in ‘countries with the most number of women executives’ in Women in Business 2018 report.

During the Palace press briefing on Thursday, Presidential spokesperson Harry Roque, the ranking showed that the administration is continuously aiming to improve lives of women in the country in economic, political, and social contexts.

“Women and men are equal partners in the pursuit of the country’s development as we all vow to fully implement the Magna Carta of women this international women’s day,” Roque said.

Earlier, the Palace also listed pro-women policies that President Rodrigo Duterte has implemented since his stint as Davao mayor.

“There’s a distinction between his language and his policies. Pagdating po sa polisiya niya bilang mayor, eh recognized po ang (When it comes to his policies), Davao City [is recognized] as one of the friendliest cities to women,” he continued.

Roque said that a local version of reproductive health bill was implemented in Davao even before it was approved in the national level. Duterte has also established reproductive health and wellness centers to give residents access to family planning alternatives.

As per the national level, President Duterte has signed Executive Order No. 12 which aims to provide needs for modern family planning through the strict implementation of the Responsible Parenthood and the Reproductive Health Act.

The latest action to help women was the imposition of deployment ban after reports of abuse toward female overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) in Kuwait surfaced following the death of OFW Joanna Demafelis whose body was found stuffed inside a refrigerator in an abandoned apartment in the Gulf state.

The ranking was published by Grant Thornton International, Ltd. one of the world’s largest professional services network of independent accounting and consulting member firms. The ranking was based on survey answered by 4,500 senior executives in 35 different countries.

The report revealed that 46.58 percent of Filipino women in the workplace occupy senior management roles.
