Book 17: ELEVATING THE ROLE OF THE FEMALE WARRIOR

Women played a vital role in the liberation of Marawi Commanding units, pending psychological intervention in IDP centers and participating/implementing CMO activities. They served side by side and complemented their male counterparts.

Hijab troopers broke the ice with the local community and converged the concern of the security forces for the IDPs.

The book also traces the historical milestones of women in the military service from the foundation of the Women’s Auxiliary Corps to the first women graduates of the AFP Officers Candidate School and the Philippine Military Academy.
