Ascending the Fourth Mountain
In Ascending the Fourth Mountain, Maria Virginia Yap Morales tells her story of the martial law years in the Philippines and of the widespread participation of women against the violations of human rights and sexual abuse under military detention. This book is the story of a woman who struggled for equality within a revolutionary movement and fully participated to draft the orientation of the Malayang Kilusan ng Bagong Kababaihan (MAKIBAKA). It is also the author's journey to discover and study herself, and to eventually see through the mote in her own eye that blurs a fourth mountain looming large, blocking her vision of political and social transformation.
