HIGHLIGHTS: #WHIPIT – Beating the stereotypes

On Nov 26, Rappler, in partnership with Pantene, will present the results of a survey on women and what they face

MANILA, Philippines – Rappler, in partnership with Pantene, launches #WHIPIT, a weekly series of stories and conversations about women we hope will anchor a movement to challenge the status quo.

A survey commissioned by Rappler takes a closer look at how society looks at women in the Philippines today. Covering the National Capital Region – Metro Manila – the survey captures the more liberal views in urban areas.

Have perceptions progressed? 

You can judge for yourself.

On Tuesday, November 26, the survey results were presented at the Whitespace Manila in Makati City.

Watch the event below.

During the forum, 6 empowered women shared their own experiences in beating stereotypes and overcoming gender-based challenges in their careers.

Over the years, the Philippines has narrowed down the male-female gap in education, in the workplace, and in health. But problems persist. 

Join the continuing discussion on Twitter on what else can be done to empower Filipino women. Tweet with the #WHIPIT.
