This sculpture is a fitting tribute to the Filipino Woman as a leader in such fields as government, education, social work, and business. Today’s Filipino woman has gone beyond what traditional society dictates to become a trailblazer, an exemplary model of leadership and innovation. Indeed she is a true leader who proudly soars high as she brings about positive changes in society – all in the service of God and country.
