March is National Women’s Month in the Philippines, and March 8 is International Women’s Day. The Peninsula Manila has often marked it by celebrating women’s advancement in their careers.
This year, however, the iconic hotel wants to honor the unpaid work that mothers have done that are often overlooked (amen!).
A report by Oxfam in January 2020 calculated that women globally would have made a whopping US$10.8 trillion in 2019 if they earned minimum wage for their unpaid work. We also call it invisible labor, and it includes routine housework, child care, shopping for household items, tending to elderly relatives, and other caregiving work that rarely gets acknowledged.
“Just because we do the work of raising children out of love and a sense of duty doesn’t mean that it isn’t real, hard work,” says Loleth So, The Peninsula Manila’s director of marketing, a mom of an 8-year-old, Mika. She has also had to take on the additional role of caregiver after her husband Mike suffered a debilitating stroke in 2015.
So, in honor of the work mothers have been doing, The Peninsula Manila has created a room package that’s designed to pamper, indulge, and spoil. (It’s really a terrific deal if you’re looking to treat yourself with your family.)
Until March 31, 2021, room rates will start at P8,650 (inclusive of taxes) for a Deluxe Room with Antigen Tests for two (2) persons.
Set breakfast for two adults and two children at The Lobby (children must be 5 years old and under)
