[en] This book’s main focus is the “cultural” aspects of being and becoming a Filipino
feminist. It sets out to articulate the “political” within the feminist agenda. The book, importantly, raises the question “What is ‘Filipino’ feminism today?” Roces answers this question by highlighting three significant forces that have shaped its history, including the postcolonial condition, the national democratic struggle and western feminism, and the ways in which these forces intersect with the “Filipino feminist agenda”.
