Listen, ladies! CJ Sereno urges women to stay focused
“Women can focus, focus, focus and get to the bottom of things. We cannot be distracted, our energies cannot be dissipated, we know the real picture and understand what is at stake.”
These were the words of Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno addressed to the women among the audience at a forum in University of the Philippines Diliman on Thursday.
As the country’s first female chief justice, Sereno urged women to stay focused and lead the “call to reason in an increasingly chaotic, noisy and confused world.”
Slapped with an impeachment case, she has been standing up to critics for nearly eight months, what she claimed as an “unceasing attack against her person and her office.”
Never say die!
