IN PHOTOS: Dingdong Dantes walks in heels to promote Pinay power

MANILA, Philippines – What’s it like to be “in her shoes?” National Youth Commission Commissioner Dingdong Dantes showed us how as he walked the streets of Quezon City in heels on Friday, March 6, at 9am. (READ: Maria Ressa, Dingdong Dantes receive Freedom Flame award)

Dingdong posted a photo of him in his heels on Instagram, thanking wife Marian:

"Nagsuot ako ng heels bilang pagbigay pugay sa mga kababaihan sa buong mundo, lalo na sa buhay ko: ang aking Nanay, mga kapatid, at lalo na ang aking asawang si Marian. 

(I wore heels as a way to honor the women of the world, especially the ones in my life: my mother, siblings, and especially my wife, Marian.) 

#inHerShoes is the second year wherein the#nationalyouthcommission takes the lead in celebrating women power.

We support all moves to strengthen the implementation of the social protection of women specially in areas such as: safety in the workplace, and ensuring women leadership that is beyond cultural boundaries and religious norms.

Kaya ngayon na may asawa na ako, mas magandang maintindihan ko ang mga sacrifices that you have made, and will continue to do for me. (Now that I have a wife, it's better that I understand the sacrifices you have made and will continue to make for me.)

Salamat @therealmarian, ang aking sponsor, for these literally high heels. A snappy salute to all the women in the world! @nycpilipinas @angelinedantes@ayaaurelio @trinaquema @vickidantes#InHerShoes2 #respect," he wrote. 

He was joined by National Youth Commission chairperson Gio Tingson, who also sported a pair of wedges as he walked. 

“To walk in women’s shoes is a challenge for men to understand and reflect on the daily plight of women, rethink attitudes toward them and to realize the bias against women that is inherent in our culture, practices, and values,” said Tingson in a press release.

This event coincided with the commemoration of Women’s Month, which lasts for the whole of March.
