Biosketch of MP Tarhata M. Maglangit

MP TARHATA MATALAM MAGLANGIT has always advocated for the Bangsamoro people’s rightful claim to their Hulah, Bangsa, and Agama (homeland, nation, and faith). Now serving her people as a member of the Bangsamoro Transition Authority (BTA) Parliament, she continues to build on decades of community and civil society work that brings Bangsamoro women from the margins to the center of governance and representation in the newly-established Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (BARMM).

Prior to her appointment to the BTA Parliament under the BARMM, MP Maglangit served as the chairperson of the Bangsamoro Women Services Center from 2015 to 2022, and executive director of the Bangsamoro Women Solidarity Forum from 2005 to 2014. Both of these organizations, under the leadership of MP Maglangit, have taken on active roles in making sure that women’s voices are heard and accounted for in peace building efforts across the region, in partnership with organizations working on peace and development in the Bangsamoro.

MP Maglangit has also served in a previous iteration of the regional government as part of the ARMM’s Regional Commission on Bangsamoro Women (RCBW), taking on different roles as its commissioner and regional chairperson in the late 90s and early 2000s.

Her experience in the regional government and the Bangsamoro’s vibrant civil society has been shaped by her years in the Moro National Liberation Front (MNLF), particularly among leaders who pursued the peace negotiations that led to the signing of the 1987 Jeddah Accord and the 1996 Final Peace Agreement.

A graduate of AB Islamic Studies from the University of the Philippines-Diliman, MP Maglangit was born and raised in a multicultural family with a Maguindanaon father and a Meranao mother. She is married to Mahendra Madjilon, a Tausug who has also taken key roles in the ARMM and the GRP-OIC-MNLF Peace Process. Together, they have two children.
