Sen. Pia graces ‘Author’s Night’ in Baguio City Jan.10
Senator Pia S. Cayetano will be in Baguio City on Tuesday, January 10, to meet with local book enthusiasts, including women and youth leaders, bloggers, and members of the media to talk about her very first book, ‘My Daily Race.’
The lady senator will grace ‘Author’s Night’ at Mt. Cloud Bookshop located at Casa Vallejo on Upper Session Road at 5:30 pm. Cayetano will read from her book and entertain questions from the audience at the gathering which is open to the public. She will also be signing copies of the book which will be sold at a discount during the event.
In ‘My Daily Race,’ Cayetano reflects on her multi-tasking life as a legislator, triathlete (swimmer, biker and runner) and mother to three children. The book traces her journey from 2004 as a reluctant candidate who would become the youngest woman elected in the history of the Philippine Senate. She would later become the very first Filipino and Asian elected president of a standing committee of the Inter-Parliamentary Union.
Now on her second term, the senator pushed for the passage of a number of landmark legislation for women, children and the elderly in the last seven years. These include the Expanded Senior Citizens Act, Magna Carta of Women, Expanded Breastfeeding Act, Food and Drugs Administration Act, Cheaper Medicines Act and Mandatory Hepa-B Immunization Act, among others.
The principal sponsor of the Reproductive Health (RH) Bill in the Senate, Cayetano is likewise expected to talk about her advocacies on women, health, and her various sports events which help raise funds for differently-abled children and raise awareness on women’s rights and empowerment. #
