Maria Corazon "Cory" Cojuangco Aquino was a Filipina politician who served as the 11th President of the Philippines and the first woman to hold that office. She is widely accredited as the "Mother of Asian Democracy". The first female president in the Philippines, Aquino was the most prominent figure of the 1986 People Power Revolution, which toppled the 21-year rule of President Ferdinand Marcos. She was named Time magazine's Woman of the Year in 1986. Prior to this, she had not held any other elective office. She is the leader of the world's most successful non-violent and bloodless peace revolution against a dictatorial regime.
