“The Filipina Leader Soars High.” A sculpture paying tribute to the Filipina leaders can be seen in Marikina.
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.
The sculpture was made by Marikina-based sculptor Juan Sajid Imao, son of National Artist Abdulmari Imao and can be seen at the Women’s Park, one of the sections of the Marikina River walk.
