About This Book

This is a ground-breaking collection which brings together the personal narratives of Filipino women writers of several generations. As the authors record the different passages of their lives -- growing up, going to school, falling in love, getting married, becoming single again, striking out, earning a living, becoming mothers and grandmothers, surviving war, going away, coming home again -- many women readers will find echoes of their own sojourns, and they will come away bemused by the realization of how Pinays have changed, and with how they remained the same.
