Women in the Philippines and History of the Philippines Leonor Riveraone of the four influences to Filipina women writers. Among the principal influences to the Filipina image of herself and to her writings we include four women in Philippine history, namely: Often mentioned in Philippine literature, these four represent the struggle, perception and character of how it is to be a woman in Philippine society.
Gabriela Silang was a katipunera or a revolutionary — a representation of female bravery — who fought against Spanish colonialism in the 18th century.
Silang was a contrast to the chaste and religiously devout image of the Filipino lady as portrayed by Jose Rizal through his Spanish-language novels, Noli Me Tangere and El Filibusterismo. Within the pages of these 19th century novels, Rizal depicted Leonor Rivera - a girlfriend of his - through the fictional character of Maria Clara as the epitome of virtue, i.

Ramos and Joseph Estradarespectivelyfollowed in the footsteps of Corazon Aquino to become a leader and political figure of an Asian nation. Creating an image unique to themselves — through their own individual efforts — became the norm. Contemporary feminist female writers were also inclined to break away from the traditional, idealized and typecast image of the Filipina of the past as matriarchal mystics and figures who performed sacrifices, underwent suffrage and works of martyrdom which was to be expected, given their pious upbringing.
Women writers also passed judgment against the typical portrayal of women as sex symbols. Among the first lady writers to break away from the old style and genre, exemplified in the works of past female writers, were Paz Latorena's traditional "teachings" about the ideal Filipina in the feminist poet, Marjorie Evasco.
An example is the publication of Forbidden Fruit, a bilingual volume combining Filipino and English language works of women.
Philippine languages and Education in the Philippines Contrary to the treatment received by Filipinos during the Spanish colonial period, the education of the Philippine citizenry was prioritized during the time of the American occupation, as seen in the activities of the Thomasites and U.
Thus, only the elite class of society — those known as the Ilustrados — preferred using Spanish rather than enhance and develop the native ancient scripts baybayinlanguages and dialects. Filipinos of both genders were able to obtain schooling and learning opportunities resulting in their education of the English-language and a high literacy rating for a developing country like the Philippines.
However, despite this advantage, grants and similar forms of funding were not immediately available to Philippine writers — both men and women. Nevertheless, despite this lack of financial support for writers, many works in the Filipiniana style proliferated and were written dominantly in Philippine Englishbut fewer however saw print in the local maternal languages.
The persistence of this competitive phenomenon was due to the close economic, military and cultural association of the Philippines to the United States, the encouragement of the use of English in combination with the dialects in schools and universities, and the need to gain a larger audience of readership.
As a result, bilingualism - and even multilingualism - became the linguistic style and norm. Literature of the Philippines Literature penned by women authors in the Philippines embraced the many realities and faces of Filipino society: Women in the Philippines and History of the Philippines Precolonial to Spanish colonization[ edit ] Prior to the surge of Spanish conquerors and colonizers, Filipino women were already creating and recording poetry using perishable materials such as banana leaves.
Indigenous Filipino women were also singing tribal songs at a time when they enjoyed equal status to their male counterparts. They could own property, become rulers themselves in place of men, act as ritual leaders or babaylansand had the right to divorce husbands.
In this sense, the Philippines was very similar to Spain, where the highest power was bestowed upon a woman. Both the founder of the Spanish nation Isabella I of Castille and the highest ruler of Spain and the Philippines during the last years of the Spanish colonization Isabella II of Spain were women and held absolute power to lead the future of the nation.ONE OF THE POPULAR POSTS I shared in my blogsite was posted two years ago about free e-books in Filipino.
