Focusing on the transnational activism of two Filipino American women committed to social justice on both sides of the Pacific during the 1970s, Catherine Ceniza Choy reconceptualizes our understanding of the anti-martial movement in the Philippines and the Asian American movement. She points out that while Filipino women have garnered media and scholarly attention, both Philippine and U.S. national historiographies have obscured Filipino American womenÕs lives. Ceniza Choy highlights the activities of Filipino women who have remained largely invisible in both Asian American and Philippine studies. Her analysis also demonstrates how gendered and class expectations shaped their activism in both the Philippines and the U.S.
