Woman’s Suffrage Plebiscite Bill
« on: September 30, 2020, 10:23:14 AM »
#OnThisDay September 30, 1936, President Manuel L. Quezon signs the ‘Woman’s Suffrage Plebiscite Bill’ in the presence of women leaders in the Philippines, stating over the radio that in any democracy women should be allowed to use the ballot.

Quezon said: “I have signed this bill not only to perform a constitutional duty but also to help further the cause in which I have been deeply interested for many years.

“Under the Government, which has been established through the provisions of the Constitution, I am of the opinion that it is essential and even imperative that the right to vote be granted to Filipino women… [and] not to be treated as mere slaves. To women this is their opportunity to secure all the rights and privileges that the women of other countries have… This is their opportunity to wield a very important weapon to defend their right to secure for themselves and those to follow them their well-being and happiness.”

"If you declare with your mouth, Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved."
