The other day I found a Superwoman of the Philippines. I was walking up my street in my Philippine subdivision when I saw this elderly looking woman. She was using a hand made tool to dig what appeared to be fence post holes for a bamboo fence. I asked her age only to find out that she is 77 years old.  What was really unique was this superwoman of the Philippines started working around 7 am and did not stop unit about 5 pm. I was amazed at her energy level wondering if there was some way I could bottle it.

This is just one of many things I have notice about the superwoman of the Philippines. That a lot of them possess a strong drive and a willingness to do just about anything in order to get a job done.

Lots of Superwoman in the Philippines

If anybody has stayed in the Philippines for any length of time, one can easily find a superwoman of the Philippines. Just go to any town or village to find them. All over the islands there are women doing men’s tasks and at times doing just at good if not better.

Check out the video to get a better idea of just what I mean.

Every since I have been a Philippine vlogger, I have witnessed both men and women in the roles of superman or superwoman, doing whatever it takes to get the job done to either earn money for the family or put food on the table. I am not sure of the statistics but I believe that the employment rate is a little higher than that of the men. Many of the government jobs around my home are filled by more women than men.
