The Women of Malolos
In 1888, a group of young women in Malolos, Bulacan participated in a peaceful protest against educational policies that discriminated against women who wanted to pursue higher education. Their effort is recognized as one of the most important events that contributed to the development of the feminist movement in the Philippines.
The women, majority of whom were related to each other by blood or affinity, were members of the four prominent Fiilipino-Chinese families in Malolos: the Tiongsons, the Tantocos, the Reyeses, and the Santoses. This book, written by one of the descendants, Nicanor G. Tiongson, contributes to the scholarship on the women of Malolos, the Propaganda Movement and the revolutionary period while adding new insights and material based on family history.
