Gabriela’s top three nominees include Rep. Arlene Brosas, human rights advocate Bai Ali Indayla and consumer rights defender Lucy Francisco who seek to represent in Congress the women in Luzon, Mindanao and Visayas.

“Under an administration which casually serves ‘rape jokes’, promotes abuse of women and dangles its abuse of discretionary powers, GWP has more reasons to secure three seats in Congress,” Gabriela Rep. Arlene Brosas said.

Gabriela also added that they will continue to push for the lowering of water and power rates and for the increase in the national minimum wage.

They also vowed to fight against various forms of abuses against women.
