Constructing the Filipina
Constructing the Filipina: A History of Women's Magazines (1891-2002) by Georgina Reyes Encanto is a landmark feminist study of women's magazines in the Philippines from the late Spanish period to the beginning of the 21st century. Adopting Gramsci's theory of hegemony and Althusser's ideological state apparatuses as its framework, it "demonstrates how magazines have colluded with other ideological apparatuses such as family, the church, and the educational system to mold the thinking, outlook and way of perceiving the world, including the social relations and self-images of generations of Filipinas."
