“So-called ‘frailties of women,’ even men or any gender for that matter, can never be cited as a defense for crimes, be it adultery, abuse of authority by a public official or drug trafficking.
This is allegedly the official statement of Gabriela in response to the growing clamor from the public asking the women’s rights advocacy group to speak for or against Sen. de Lima.
Gabriela stoically said that ‘frailties of women’ can never be used as a defense to evade from criminal accountability.
It should not be used — especially by one who olds a position of power like Senator Leila de Lima — as an excuse from criminal accountability or to paint herself as a victim.”
Meanwhile, netizens welcome Gabriela’s statement, drawing mostly positive comments on Facebook.
