  TIME Magazine | 60 Years of Asian Heroes: Corazon Aquino
The widow of popular opposition leader Benigno Aquino, who was murdered at Manila airport in 1983 on his return from exile in Boston, she showed a quiet courage that moved millions.
Born to privilege, she was the dutiful political wife, who stayed in the background while her husband, also from a wealthy family that had held public office for generations, was on the fast track.
Aquino's six-year presidency was marred by attempted military coups, human-rights abuses by a still-powerful army, and general incompetence.

Aquino was born Ikuko Toguri in Los Angeles on July 4, 1916.
Aquino's trial began on July 5, 1949, one day after her 33rd birthday.
