WHY Her? Elected to the Philip­pine Se­nate in the 2013 midterm elections, Villar is no stranger to pol­i­tics as she was born into a po­lit­i­cal fam­ily and served as con­gress­woman of Las Piñas from 2001 to 2010. A bril­liant sen­a­tor, she chairs sev­eral se­nate com­mit­tees: on en­vi­ron­ment and nat­u­ral re­sources, food and agri­cul­ture, and agrar­ian re­form. In PHI­LAN­THROPY: Out­side of the Se­nate, Villar is also the manag­ing di­rec­tor of Villar SIPAG, an or­gan­i­sa­tion geared to­wards poverty al­le­vi­a­tion and the plight of OFWs.
