        During the dark period in our history, women were confined only in the four corners of their home - to serve the needs of their husband and children. Their knowledge and skills were limited to household chores. They have no right to enroll in an educational institution of higher learning. Frustrated by the fate of women - on December 1888, twenty (20) women from Malolos petitioned Governor General Wyler for a permission to open a night school so that they can study Spanish language. Spanish priest Fr. Felipe Garcia objected, their petition was turned down -- but the women bravely pursued their dream defying friar's objection, until they finally obtained the government's approval, an attitude unheard of during those days.
