A lot of people (especially those from the women’s groups) have been talking about yet another ‘victory’ of the female species as 9 of the 12 topnotchers (2 tied for the 7th and 10th places) of the September 2007 Bar Examinations are women. Well, much as I am happy to know many women topped the exam, I would not be any less happy if more men did. I’m not really a follower of the battle of the sexes.
What I’m more excited about is the new cause for Dabawenyos to celebrate – (drum roll, please) Atty. Ruby M. Luy, Bar Exams 9th placer, from the Ateneo de Davao University! I don’t personally know Atty. Luy, except that she is my classmate’s girlfriend’s sister (some connection, huh? haha..). But, I rejoice with her as she brought pride to our beloved Davao. Hurrah for Ruby! Mabuhay ka!
