Corazon Aquino

Corazon Aquino, 1989

Corazon “Cory” Aquino was a Filipino politician who served as the 11th President of the Philippines, becoming the first woman to hold that office. She was the most prominent figure of the 1986 “People Power Revolution”, which ended the 20-year rule of President Ferdinand Marcos – defections from the Armed Forces of the Philippines and the support of the local Catholic hierarchy led to the Revolution that ousted Marcos and secured Aquino’s accession on February 25, 1986.
