About GWP

Gabriela Women’s Party is a sectoral party dedicated to promoting the rights and welfare of marginalized and under-represented Filipino women through participation in the country’s electoral system and organs of governance.

Gabriela Women’s Party seeks to harness the potential, initiative, skills and leadership of marginalized women towards empowerment, justice and equality.

HER STORY

Founded on October 28,2000, Gabriela Women’s Party is an offshoot of the biggest alliance of women’s organizations in the Philippines, GABRIELA.

Rich with experiences and lessons of having been at the forefront of the Philippine women’s movement in its over 20 years of existence, GABRIELA first joined the electoral arena in 2001 when it fielded then Secretary General, Liza Largoza Maza to run as partylist representative under Bayan Muna (People First) Party.

Following its successful foray in parliament with the passage of pro-women legislation including the anti-Trafficking in Persons Act and the Anti-Violence Against Women and Children Act in the 12th Congress, Gabriela Women’s Party fielded its nominees in the 2004 national partylist elections for the first time. Gabriela Women’s Party emerged 7th of 66 parties, garnering enough votes to have Hon. Liza Maza serve as the sole women’s sectoral representative in the 13th Congress.

Proof of its exemplary performance it its continuing success in the electoral arena. Gabriela Women’s Party rose to 4th place in the 2007 partylist elections, reaping votes for not just one but for a second representative in the 14th Congress, Hon. Luzviminda Ilagan.

Today, with over 100,000 members in 15 regions in the Philippines and Filipino communities abroad, Gabriela Women’s Party through grassroots organizing, education, services, various campaigns and legislative efforts continues to advance the rights of women, children and country.

    Hi, I wondered if Mrs Ruby Padilla-Sison or others would be able to tell me if the orphanage Pagsagop children’s farm set up by Atty Sol Jubilan in 1989 is still operating, and how we could make contact with the people involved. A group of us in Australia gave some funding for its establishment, and were very sad to hear of her tragic death last year.
    Many thanks,
    Bill

    I am a simple citizen yet observant and not blind of what is happening to our country and all these crisis we are suferring. I’m one of those people are shouting that Gloria nust leave ger post cos I know and people know that Gloria’s regime is more than worst than expected. Though other people are not into these kind of agenda,e.g rally, I know that from the bottom of their hearts they are shouting for a better life and good government who’s concentration must be focused not to their selves (politicians sp. GLORIA ARROYO) but to the needs and the problems of citizens and our country. SONA of GLORIA ARROYO is being held today at Sandigan Bayan and we are shouting for development. GLORIA ARROYO should think of her people not only her satisfaction. More lies more mistakes.. I admire you Gabriela Party List and I want to be one of you… More power to all. We should help each other and do it for the Filipinos!!! can I have the contact number of the party list? Thanks and More power
