Corazon Aquino

Corazon Aquino, second left, marches with about 2,000 women, students, teachers, professionals and nuns to hold a sit-in at the residence of President Ferdinand Marcos in 1985. Aquino was born in 1933 in the Philippines, but her family moved to the United States after World War II, and she attended high schools in New York and Philadelphia before earning a bachelor’s degree in French from Mount St. Vincent College in New York.
