Duterte: "Next Chief Justice should NOT be a woman"

It has been a long running joke that President Duterte is afraid of women in power. Today, he confirmed it. He said the next CJ should NOT be a woman.

President Rodrigo Duterte on Wednesday, May 16, said he is ruling out politicians – and most especially women – as the Philippines' next [CJ]. In a chance interview on Wednesday, Duterte said that while the Judicial and Bar Council (JBC) will nominate the next [CJ], he will choose a person known for his integrity. Referring to the JBC, Duterte said, "Mag-nominate sila, pero I choose, but gusto ko 'yung bilib ang tao sa integrity niya. Of course it could not be a politician, lalo na hindi babae." (They will nominate, but I will choose, and I want a person who is admired by people because of his integrity. Of course it could not be a politician, especially not a woman.)

Behavior that promotes the culture of misogyny, that justifies and normalizes abuses, and that denigrates women should not be tolerated by any Filipino. I am speaking for myself, as well as for mothers, wives, daughters, and sisters, even the other women that pass by as strangers. Rodrigo Duterte, well-known for his jokes on rape and derogatory words toward women before and after his election as president, let loose with another sexist and misogynistic remark last Feb. 7 concerning female New People’s Army fighters: He said soldiers involved in counterinsurgency operations should shoot the women rebels in their private parts.

President Rodrigo Duterte on Wednesday laid down the characteristics he is looking for in the successor of ousted Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno. "Gusto ko 'yung bilib ang tao sa integrity niya.
