This book examines how women hold power unofficially through their kinship ties with male. Explores gender and power in post-war Philippines through the perspective of local concepts of power embedded in the predominant political culture of traditional kinship politics, focusing on women's political power. Areas discussed include symbols of power, women politicians, women in radical polit.

Women in positions of power are women who hold an occupation that gives them great authority, influence, and/or responsibility. Historically, power has been distributed among the sexes disparately. Power and powerful positions have most often been associated with men as opposed to women. As gender equality increases, women hold more and more powerful positions, due to policy and social reform.

Roces, publisher of The Manila Times, pleaded with the president: Please allow me to remind you, first. That our people brought a new government to power because our people felt an urgent need for change. The people believed, and many of them still do, that when we said we would be the exact opposite of Marcos, we would be just that.

Politics in the Philippines is not male-dominated, but gendered. This book examines how women hold power unofficially through their kinship ties with male politicians. Examining the perspectives of local concepts of power, the author explores gender and power in post-war Philippines and characterizes kinship politics embedded in the predominate political culture.

Women's power is a site where the conflict between the two discourses of kinship politics and modern nationalist values is daily contested. Unofficial women's power is resourced through kinship politics, but because it is exercised behind the scenes it makes women vulnerable to criticisms that they are manipulative or scheming, wielding power that is illegal, undemocratic, anti-nationalist and unaccountable. But, at the other end of the equation, women's crusades against graft and corruption is doubly legitimized through both the modern discursive prioritizing of the nation-state and through women's traditional gendered roles as moral guardians. This book will be of interest to scholars and students in Philippine studies, Southeast Asian history, gender studies, women and power in Asia, and feminist studies.
