Filipino Peasant Women presents a compelling example of the power of the powerless. In it, author Ligaya Lindio-McGovern offers the first study of the everyday lives of Filipino peasant women and their means of resisting the exploitative system in which they find themselves. While illustrating the increasing exploitation and poverty these women face, Lindio-McGovern challenges the conventional portrayal of them as submissive victims.
