The Sandugo was the historic blood compact between Bohol chief Datu Sikatuna and Spanish colonial official and consquistador Miguel Lopez de Legazpi which they performed on the southwest coast of Bohol Island on 15 March 1565. The two were believed to have cut their left arms with a dagger and then collected a few drops of blood from the cuts, mixed them with wine and drank the mixture. This symbolized their sealing of their friendship and establishing of amicable bonds between their parties.

The word "sandugo" means "one blood" in the Visayan language. The blood compact between Sikatuna and Legazpi is depicted in the 1883 Juan Luna painting El Pacto de Sangre.

"What is the history of Women’s Month in the Philippines? "


Every March since 1988, Women's Month has been celebrated in the Philippines. This month is celebrated by recognizing the achievements of the country’s women, and raising significant awareness about the issues that the women have been battling over the years. For many decades, the women of the Philippines have been an active voice in campaigning for the right of women to vote and to engage in politics. Although it was in 1907 when the First Suffrage Bill was signed by Congressman Filemon Sotto, it was 30 years later (1937) when women became legally allowed to vote in the Philippines, making it one of the first Asian countries to institutionalize women’s suffrage. In 1986, the Philippines elected its first female president, Maria Corazon Cojuangco Aquino. Two years later, on the 17th of March 1988, former President Corazon Aquino signed Proclamation No. 227, s. 1988, providing for the observance of the month of March as "Women’s Role in History Month".
