Filipina Changes America Changes Filipina

In conjunction with the exhibition Sheer Realities: A Celebration of Philippine Culture

Speakers will provide nuanced perspectives on the changing roles of Filipino American women, the unique dimensions of feminism in Filipino culture, and the myriad ways in which Filipinas continue to transform America.
