NEW YORK, New York (The Adobo Chronicles, New York Bureau) – What do Greta Thunberg, Beyoncé, Jacinda Ardern, Kamala Harris, Meghan Markle and Arian Grande have in common? They are all among the women nominees this year’s Time magazine “Person of the Year.”
Online polling is ongoing with the name of the winner to be announced on December 10.
Apparently missing from the list is Philippine Vice President Leni Robredo, the erstwhile leader of the country’s political opposition who has been in the headlines in recent months, issuing statements and going on Facebook Live with her tirades against President Rodrigo Duterte’s administration.
Many Filipino netizens were seriously disappointed that Robredo didn’t make the cut. They were unanimous in saying that the Vice President should have been included as the other woman of the year.
Maybe next year.
