Edited by Florence M. Tadiar with Neferti Xina M. Tadiar, Lighting the Fire: Stories of the Women’s Health Rights Movement in the Philippines is a collection of personal stories and reflections on the women’s health movement from the view of its pioneer advocates and service providers. The fulfillment, respect, protection, and enjoyment of the right of all women to attain and maintain the highest attainable standard of physical and mental health, based on their informed decisions, evolved as the long term goal of what became the Women’s Health Rights Movement (WHRM) in the Philippines. After almost half a century of activities by various leaders and participants, these trailblazers are again realizing that, without continuous guarding of victories won and further social change, women’s health rights will constantly be under attack. This book aims to provide others with the inspiration to carry on and to guide future generations in “keeping the fire burning.”
