HAPI Women are Genuinely Strong Women!

March is dubbed as the International Women’s Month, and March 8th is the date of the International Women’s day which was started back in 1909 by the Socialist Party of America. It is the focal point in the movement for women’s right. Since this date, many actions were initiated for the empowerment of women around the world.

Women are strong and powerful. They are warriors that conquered various challenges defying the social construct set to them by patriarchy. Hats off to these valiant women who staved off doubts clouding their capabilities; who slain the concept that women only belong to the kitchen.

The thought that women are inferior is an outdated notion.

Our very own HAPI Founder and Chairperson Emeritus, Marissa Torres Langseth or Ms. M, is a great example in defining a true genuinely strong woman. From her inspirational early years that shaped her in being indestructible in countless atrocious, tasteless attacks aimed at her, to making this organization bloom through her zealous generosity and heartwarming support, she truly is an epitome of a genuinely strong woman.

People come and go but,  “Ms. M is here to stay”- that is one platinum commitment to humanity.

Along with her are the unshakeable women of HAPI worthy of recognition.  These strong  women are, Jamie Del Rosario Martinez, Jhing Dedicatoria, Patricia Milton, Filipinas del Valle, Glemir Sordilla, Elena Allen, Rizalina Carr, Amz Higgins, and Kris Tianne Fallarcuna.

HAPI Super Women

 

They embody the essence of a HAPI strong woman.

Women from HAPI and other countless female around the world share how it is being strong willed and strong hearted that defiantly believe in the future where women are involved, acknowledged, and respected in whatever field they have chosen. An ensuing time where discrimination towards a specific gender is non existent and a future where people help and work harmoniously for the betterment of humanity.

Women in HAPI will continue being viciously gentle and unapologetically themselves, because being an empowered woman, empowers women. To all women out there, continue in educating yourself and shatter more glass ceilings. To all women who stood up, made noise and demanded on what they deserve and to those who silently made history, Happy Women’s Month, it truly is a celebration being a woman.
