FWN CEO and founder Marily Mondejar shares how Filipina women can exercise their power: Speak up. "My message to the Filipina women of the world: develop your voice. When you attend an event, raise your hand and ask a question. People will remember you spoke up. If something bothers you. Speak up. Your opinion is important. You are a contributor to the economy. So it's important that business hears your feedback." News story from ABS-CBN
