Rights of Women, Youth and Children

November 9, 2012

Committed to serve the most vulnerable members of society, Loren works hard to protect the rights and promote the welfare of women, youth, and children. 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.

Her legislative efforts resulted in the passage of the Anti-Violence Against Women and Children Act, Magna Carta of Women, Anti-Child Labor Law, the Anti-Trafficking in Persons Act and its expanded version, the Expanded Anti-Trafficking in Persons Act, which was the first anti-trafficking law in South East Asia. Through the years, Loren has remained steadfastly committed to defending women and children against all kinds of abuses.
