The University of the Philippines Center for Women’s and Gender Studies (UPCWGS) is launching the latest issue of its journal, the Review of Women’s Studies Volume XXIX, Number 2: Special Issue on Gender and Populism in the Philippines, today, 14 August 2020, 3:00 PM.

An excerpt from the Editorial Introduction: Duterte’s Philippines in the World of Gendered Populism by Cleve V. Arguelles and Veronica L. Gregorio:

“The resurgence of populism is one of the most significant contemporary developments to have affected the lives of women and other gender minorities in the Philippines and the rest of the world. The Review of Women’s Studies Special Issue on Gender and Populism in the Philippines (2020) critically examines the varied ways the marriage of patriarchal practices and populist politics has reinforced, re-shaped, and retrofitted the contours of hegemonic gender norms in Philippine society. Using a diverse set of scholarly lenses, the special issue pays attention to the pernicious consequences of gendered populism on the everyday experiences of Filipino women and LGBTQ+ communities on the ground.”
