International Women’s Month Celebrates The Filipina

she-ka guestingIt seems FilipinaImages.com is getting more attention these days. Perhaps because March is International Women’s Month. The black “Yan ang Filipina” shirt customized by wikipilipinas refused to fit me. I felt like a “suman”. So I ditched that and wore something that won’t make me look ten pounds heavier on TV. I had to drag my lethargic body at 6:00 AM thinking the She-Ka TV magazine (aired over NBN 4) was at 7:00 AM. At the last minute, the show was pushed to 8:00 AM. It was worth it.

marines filipinaIt’s my first time to meet brave Filipina women from the Marines who related their airborne, driving the APC (tank?) and being part of the Trillanes- Manila Peninsula operations. What an honor! I wonder what it’d be like to drive one of those huge tanks. I learned they are now open to recruitment of more marines.

  • Cool!…I alway admire the marines women. They prove that women could also do men’s job. They have the thoughness of men, but also have the calmness of women inside.

  • @viona- I only see them on TV but never met any one up close.

    I know one of the women in Military Suit, but I forgot her name. I always wanted to work in a Military field, becoming a military nurse is what I like, I admire them.

    Hi! I was looking for photos of Filipino women who are involved in nation building and I stumbled upon your site. I was wondering if I could borrow some of your photos for the website we are developing for our client. The website is about women empowerment. Let me know. Thanks!
