The celebration which was organized by Talibon Council of Women (TCW) was attended by women from different villages in Talibon.
“Woman, you are beautiful! You are strong and powerful! Your voice matters,” Aumentado said in her rousing speech.
Aumentado shared that today there are many women empowering other women in the communities including Kamala Harris who became the first female vice president in American history who broke the glass ceiling in politics for women in the executive branch.
“Know your worth. Kahibaw ta kanus-a mutingog ug kanus-a muhilum,” she added. Aumentado continued, “Empowering yourself is empowering other people. ”
Ultimately, Aumentado encouraged women to uplift each other—and themselves.
Talibon Mayor Janet Garcia, Councilor Jocelyn Amba, ABC President Imelda Artiaga and TCW President Aurea Labrada also attended the event.
