MULTIPLE CHOICE - Luis Espiritu Jr. (The Philippine Star) - November 4, 2018 - 12:00am

Women empowerment in the 21st century has progressively changed countless of lives. Women’s rights have been celebrated in endless ways. These rights have become women’s source of strength to live in a challenging world that celebrates their lifestyle.

In the Philippines, the modern Filipina is an empowering force that’s strong, multi-faceted, tenacious and artistic. She creates a positive and lasting change in a community, society, nation and even the world.

These characteristics of the Filipina are highlighted even more as the Zonta Club of Makati & Environs relaunches FilipinaZ, a brand that aims to build a community that recognizes leading women’s work on various design-driven industries. Its current campaign “I am for the Filipina, I am FilipinaZ” was created in honor of the Filipina to make her voice louder through a supportive landscape of men and women coming together to learn and propagate the essence of what it truly means to be a woman today.
