“The new woman, the new Filipina, is first and foremost a militant. The new Filipina is one who can stay whole nights with striking workers, learning from them the social realities which her bourgeois education has kept from her. She is a woman who has discovered the exalting realm of responsibility, a woman fully engaged in the making of history. No longer is she a woman-for-marriage, but more and more a woman-for-action.”
-Lorena Barros, (1948-1976)
Founder of the Malayang Kilusan ng Bagong Kababaihan (MAKIBAKA), a militant women’s organization
Also a graduate of BA Anthropology (1970) in UP Diliman
