"The women in our communities though—daughters, sisters, brides, mothers, grandmothers, Manangs, women workers, hustlers, homemakers—their narratives have been grossly deprioritized, such that if we were told these narratives did not exist, there would be little cause not to believe it. [...]

The Pinay has no champion but herself." — BARBARA JANE REYES
