The event, sponsored by the government's commission on women and the local bottler of Coca-Cola, brought together 10,168 men and women who formed the giant symbol in Manila's main public park, organisers said.

"The women's symbol puts a spotlight on how women are poised to become the social and economic powerhouses of the future," Adel Tamano, the Coca-Cola Philippines vice-president, said.

Organisers of the event said that it would still take a week before the record is officially validated by Guinness World Records.

There is no previous record for the largest human formation of a gender symbol, although the Guinness website lists 10,563 people as taking part in a giant formation of a droplet in Haryana, India in November, 2013.
