The Filipina on Top

Illustrado Magazine features a short video documentary about Filipina empowerment globally. It tackles the issue about abstinence versus pre-marital sex. How can a modern Filipina deconstruct the image of Maria Clara with our current lifestyle where we are influenced by the western culture through media.

I like this video a lot because this is the real situation happening now. Though I still do not agree why were there two men interviewed on this. The expatriate who discusses about cultural differences and the other guy who is a Dubai migrant who provokes Andres Bonifacionism in times when Filipina women are oppressed and harassed.
