Allow me to greet all the women in our City ‘A Happy Women’s Day. I know that Zamboanga City is celebrating Women’s day and will start with a parade, and will end up at Paseo del Mar, and there will be other activities later at the Centro Latino to give service to our women.

We also know that the Magna Carta of Women, RA 971O, was co-authored by Mayor Maria Isabel C. Salazar, This is to give importance to Women’s rights. All women can exert their rights from their professions and all walks of life, whether at home or elsewhere! And in fact, another Republic Act  6292 was passed by our law making body to protect women and children from abuse! We women should be thankful that there are law makers who are concerned of our welfare!

I understand, Imee Marcos will be arriving in our City tomorrow. The daughter of the late During Araneta, Cecil Araneta Marcos, is in charge of the activity preparations of Ms.Marcos  visit here in Zamboanga City. We were Marcos Loualist once, and thru this column, I would like to welcome her in our midst! Welcome Imee Marcos, to our beautiful City of Zamboanga!
