#Everywoman trended as netizens take a stand against showing sex video during House inquiry  

The hashtag #everywoman trended on Twitter and Facebook today as the netizens’ way of protesting gendered attacks as some lawmakers agreed to show Senator Leila de Lima’s alleged sex video.

GMA News Online also shared Palanca-winner writer Libay Linsangan Cantor’s Facebook post with the trending hashtag, as she said that it doesn’t even matter whether people believe in de Lima or not. She is “taking a stand against attacks on a woman, period.”

According to Cosmopolitan, one supporter who joined the #Everywoman campaign noted: “The woman in the video whom they insist is de Lima has glasses. It could be any woman who has glasses.”

The hashtag is actually part of a campaign protesting the showing of de Lima’s alleged scandal in Congress, which started at 12 noon on September 30. Those who would like to participate are asked to make this line their status:

“I would like to testify in the HOR. It was me in the sex video. #Everywoman”


Vice President Leni Robredo’s daughter also jointed the campaign, as well as several other personalities like feminist-writer Ninotchka Rosca, journalist Ces Drilon.

One netizen pointed out that no one deserves “public shaming,” not even Duterte supporters whistleblower Sandra Cam and Mocha Uson.

Even men supported the campaign, tweeting #Everyman with #Everywoman.

As of 4pm today, the hashtag placed third on the list of Twitter trends in the Philippines.

House Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez saw nothing wrong with showing the video, although other lawmakers disagreed, like Senators Grace Poe, Risa Hontiveros, Nancy Binay, and Loren Legarda. Senate President Koko Pimentel advised congressmen to be sensitive and to be “ready to pay the political price” if they continue showing the video.
