Duterte: Women should only be appointed in unimportant positions like Tourism; "Ayaw ko talaga ng babae"

#BabaeAko is a movement that started because of Duterte's remarks against women. This movement aims to encourage all Filipinas to stand up against misogyny in society. Instead of avoiding remarks against women, however, Duterte, two (2) days ago in Davao City, explained why he does not like appointing women to "important" positions.

NEWS: Tired of accusations that he is a "woman hater" and a "chauvinist pig," President Rodrigo Duterte explained why he would rather avoid appointing women for certain government positions.

In his speech on Friday night, June 22 in Davao City, Duterte said there are some tasks he simply cannot expect women to do.

"Even how sabihin mo mga bright 'yang babae, yung lahat nasa political horizon – you're better off with young people. Ayaw ko talaga ng babae. Gusto ko lalaki kasi marami akong utos," he said. (Even if you say women are bright, all of those in the political horizon – you're better off with young people. I really don't want to appoint women. I want men because I have a lot of orders.) xxx

"Ako, nasanay ako sa lalaki. Pero yung mga position na hindi naman kailangan, tourism," he said. (I got used to working with men. But positions where those things aren't necessary, like tourism.)
