Duterte condemned for kissing overseas worker

Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte was accused of misogynistic behaviour when he kissed overseas Filipino worker during the meeting with members of the Filipino diaspora in Seoul, South Korea. During this event, Duterte invited two women on stage to receive a free copy of a book. Before gesturing and convincing the second woman to kiss him on the lips, Duterte hugged the first woman and gave her a kiss on the cheek.  Even though the woman said there was no malice in the kiss, the Philippines Women’s rights group Gabriela described the scene as “disgusting theatrics of a misogynist president.”
