(book orders) DISRUPT. Filipina Women: Proud. Loud. Leading Without A Doubt

The First Book on Leadership by the Filipina Women's Network is now available for purchase!  

The book is a deep examination of how Filipina women in diaspora thrive in the challenges of living in the modern multi-cultural global economy, “DISRUPT” is the definitive book that will change the public’s perceptions of Filipina women’s capacities to lead, FWN’s Pinay Power 2020 mission. 

Filipina women are the ultimate global disrupters. They disrupted their lives—families and careers—when they left their home country to immigrate to foreign lands and re-invent their lives. 
They disrupted their organizations as they became achievers in their professional fields and broke "glass ceilings". They disrupted the business landscape when they innovated products, improved or created services that impacted the lives of women and the community. They disrupted their communities as they became strong advocates for social issues that affected their families especially their children. They disrupted the political world when they ran for elected office representing causes benefiting their local communities or became political insiders as valued advisors of the elected officials they work for. 
Filipina women leaders in diaspora share their career journeys - sacrifices they endured to seek better lives for themselves and their families, how they thrived in the modern multi-cultural global economy. 
37 authors and editors are Filipina Women's Network's 100 Most Influential Filipina Women in the World™ Awardees selected from the United States, Philippines, Singapore, Brazil, Japan, United Arab Emirates, Canada, and Poland. They share inspiring stories on:
Shaping their leader identity, developing their sense of self as they achieved power and influence, determining their life purpose and world view, the cultural adjustments they made to succeed, victories over domestic violence, incarceration, poverty, discrimination and harassment, and how they coped with cognitive dissonance when Philippine traditional beliefs are at odds with the requirements of making it in the global workplace.

One Billion Rising

  • San Francisco City Hall

Rise for Revolution

One Billion Rising is the biggest mass action to end violence against women in human history.  The campaign, launched on Valentine’s Day 2012, began as a call to action based on the staggering statistic that 1 in 3 women on the planet will be beaten or raped during her lifetime. With the world population at 7 billion, this adds up to more than ONE BILLION WOMEN AND GIRLS.  On 14 February 2013, people across the world came together to express their outrage, strike, dance, and RISE in defiance of the injustices women suffer, demanding an end at last to violence against women.  Last year, on 14 February 2014, One Billion Rising for Justice focused on the issue of justice for all survivors of gender violence, and highlighted the impunity that lives at the intersection of poverty, racism, war, the plunder of the environment, capitalism, imperialism, and patriarchy. Events took place in 200 countries, where women, men, and youth came together to Rise, Release, and Dance outside of court houses, police stations, government offices, school administration buildings, work places, sites of environmental injustice, military courts, embassies, places of worship, homes, or simply public gathering places where women deserve to feel safe but too often do not. The campaign was covered widely by media in all corners of world including The New York Times, The Guardian, NPR, and many more.

This year in 2015, we are rising for Revolution. We invite you to join us.
