Rights of Women, Youth and Children

November 9, 2012

Committed to serve the most vulnerable members of the society, Loren works hard to protect the rights and promote the welfare of women, youth, and children, including victims of sexual coercion during the Second World War, commonly known as “comfort women”. Her dedication to this cause enabled her to develop leadership with a heart, leadership with passion and determination, with subtlety and firmness, drawing her concerns from her being a woman and a mother.

As such, she co-authored the Anti-Domestic Violence Act (RA 9262), Anti-Abuse of Women in Intimate Relationships Act (RA 9262), the Magna Carta for the Working Children (RA 9231) and the Anti-Trafficking in Persons Act, which was passed into law as RA 9208.
