Inquirer Names Leni Robredo 2019 Other Woman Of The Year

MANILA, Philppines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – The long-awaited news is here.  The Philippines Daily Inquirer (PDI) has released its choice for the 2019 Filipino of the Year.

However, PDI decided to rename the annual award to more accurately reflect the gender of its honoree.

PDI has named Vice President Leni Robredo as the 2019 Other Woman of the Year.

Earlier, PDI editors voted to give the Woman of the Year award to Rappler CEO Maria Ressa who respectfully declined the honor because she says it is a “step-down” from her collection of international awards, including several she had received from TIME magazine.

So instead, PDI decided to give the award to their first runner-up, Robredo.  Hence the title, “Other Woman of the Year.”
