Philippine Family Trees Series 4: The Philippine Female Presidents and Senators


In this fourth article, I wanted to feature feminism at its best in celebration of International Women's Day last March 8, 2017. As much as I would have loved to connect all the female senators of the Philippines and of course the 2 female presidents we have had, like many family trees I was unable to connect 

Of the 22 female senators of the Philippines so far, I was unable to find any connections with the rest for Senators Miriam Defensor-Santiago, Nina Rasul, Nikki Coseteng, Magnolia Antonino, and Tecla Ziga. Of course, I will continue to research so we can connect these 5 to the rest.

The above family tree connects the 2 female presidents so far, one of whom was a former Senator as well. And, all current senators: Nancy Binay, Grace Poe, Cynthia Villar, Leila de Lima, Risa Hontiveros, and Loren Legarda are all connected here.

We have the first female senator, Geronima T. Pecson, is here as well as the rest: Pacita Madrigal-Warns. Maria Kalaw-Katigbak, Eva Estrada-Kalaw, Helena Z. Benitez, Leticia Ramos-Shahani, Gloria Macapagal Arroyo, Tessie Aquino-Oreta, Loi Ejercito, Jamby Madrigal, and Pia Cayetano.
