Women in Senate

March 19, 2017

LADY LEGISLATORS – From women in showbiz a few issues back, Highspeed segues to lady legislators…in the Senate in particular. March is International Women’s Month and so it’s apt to devote space on the so-called fairer (stronger?) sex.

There are six incumbent senators, the most senior of whom (in terms of stay in the Senate) is Loren Legarda. She’s been a senator for over 12 years. Very hardworking, Loren’s advocacy includes environment, ethnic minority, health.

She was topnotcher twice, getting the most number of votes among elected senators.

When her term ends two years from now, Loren plans to take a much-needed rest and then carry on serving the public in her private capacity.
