Corazon Aquino was the 11th president of the Philippines, and the first woman to ever hold that office.

The contributions she made to her country are numerous, so if you're wondering what exactly she did for her great nation, here are a few examples:

The contributions of Corazon Aquino
President Aquino made a number of really important contributions to the Philippines:

  • She oversaw changes to the constitution that limited the powers of the president
  • She promoted human rights and civil liberty
  • She attempted to broker peace with various political factions and insurgents
  • She pushed the Filipino economy in a more healthy and responsible direction
  • She guided the country through difficult times
  • She promoted national identity and the Filipino language
More than anything else though, I think her personality was her greatest gift to the country.

The strengths of Corazon Aquino
Corazon Aquino's presidency began in very difficult circumstances.

Her husband was an important senator that was living in exile for vocally criticizing the current regime. On his return to the Philippines, he was assassinated.

Infuriated by this, Aquino led a successful challenge for the presidency.

The Filipino nation fell in love with her humble 'housewife' personality, and her strength and determination.

Because of this, I think her personality was genuinely her most significant gift to her country.

Maria Corazon "Cory" Sumulong Cojuanco Aquino or also known as Cory Aquino was the one who overthrow the President Ferdinand Marcos, and Cory was installed as President by the peaceful 1986 People Power Revolution. Cory Aquino helped lead a revolution that restored democracy and the rule of law to the Philippine nation at a time of great peril.

When she became the president the debt of the Philippines increased up to 28 billion pesos, plus her family killed a lot of people for telling the truth about the Hacienda Luisita massacre.  Yet everyone is thinking that she and her husband is a hero. Tsk. Tsk. We only have limited information about them

Watch out guys who are reading this article and comments. Many of the commentators are full of lies and they didn't even post evidence or supporting ideas. Their statements are highly unreliable. God bless.

Being the first woman to become a president and overthrowing another president said to be corrupt are not considered as accomplishment or achievements of a president. Through some research, I did not see anything that I considered as a "President's Accomplishment". Correctly, she did not overthrow the late president Marcos, some people did that (anti-Marcoses, some nuns/priest like Cardinal Sin and communists) and made Cory the Hero(or the symbol). I don't hate Cory. Just stating the fact.

It was Aquino's time that the Philippines economy started to shut down. How ever, if she just continue the under constructed projects  of Marcos like Nuclear power plant in bataan ,edi sana libre yung electriity natin.
