Statement of Senate President Aquilino "Koko" Pimentel III on the passing of former Senator Leticia Ramos-Shahani

I grieve with the family and friends of former Senator Leticia Ramos-Shahani on her passing. In her life, she accomplished much to advance the cause of women, not just in the Philippines, but all over the world. An educator, an ambassador, a UN official, a Senator, and an advocate for moral governance, she achieved more than most men could at a time when the glass ceiling for women was very real. It is a privilege for the Senate to have been one of the venues through which she advanced her advocacies. Her life and work will never be forgotten.
