Teachers are treated by students like their second mothers, and in the case of a student whose own mother barely believes her claim that she is a victim of rape, her teachers also become her only allies in seeking justice this Saturday (July 15) in another must-see episode of “Ipaglaban Mo.”
Marilyn (Barbie Imperial) used to be known as an obedient and energetic daughter to her family and friends, but one day, her teacher Delia (Ana Abad Santos) noticed Marilyn’s uncharacteristic lack of energy in school.
She then went to Marilyn’s house together with her co-teacher, Tisha (Tess Antonio) to check on her. Marilyn’s story, however, surprised them as the young girl revealed that her half-brother, Alvin (Alex Medina), had been sexually abusing her. They told the story to Marilyn’s mother, Fely (Rita Avila), who found the story absurd and took the side of Alvin.
How did Delia and Tisha help Marilyn?
Since “Ipaglaban Mo” premiered on ABS-CBN in 2014, the show has been consistently captivating viewers in its timeslot because of its timely and relevant stories that not only showcase Filipino values, but also inform viewers of their legal rights.
“Ipaglaban Mo” further strengthened its commitment to serve by offering free legal consultations to the public with Atty. Jose and Jopet Sison every week in ABS-CBN’s Tulong Center located in the ABS-CBN compound in Quezon City.
“Ipaglaban Mo” won Best Drama Anthology at the PMPC Star Awards for TV last year and the Best Public Affairs Program at the 2nd Alta Media Icon Awards.
