Poe announces victory vs DQ petitions at women’s rally

Senator Grace Poe announced her victory at the Supreme Court over several disqualification petitions against her candidacy for the presidency at a huge rally at Liwasang Bonifacio last March 8.

Before thousands of women and supporters gathered for the celebration of International Working Women’s Day (IWWD), Poe said that being allowed to stand for the highest office of the land is a victory for women like her.

Gabriela led the IWWD commemoration with a rally at the venue before marching to Mendiola to denounce the Benigno Aquino presidency’s “crimes” against women and children.
