Senator Risa Hontiveros is hoping President Duterte will obey the newly signed “Safe Spaces Act” and become an example to others.

“Hope he read it before he signed it,” Hontiveros tweeted after the landmark measure penalizing misogynistic slurs and other sexual harassment in public places was signed into law.

“Hope he follows the law. Hope he sets an example to all,” she said.

Hontiveros said the law is only as good as how it is implemented. “We need to test the law and make sure it serves its purpose. Report sexual harassers,” she said.
