STATEMENT OF INDIGNATION

The Philippine Commission on Women (PCW) expresses grave disappointment over the recent fashion show produced by a local apparel brand.
PCW condemns the act during the said fashion show wherein a female model portrayed like a pet and was held on a leash by a local endorser while walking down the runway.
While staging a fashion show is part of the company’s marketing strategy to promote their brand, said act should never be tolerated especially if it dehumanizes and demeans the dignity of women, treating their bodies as mere sex objects and commodities.
