Pinay: Culture Bearers of the Filipino Diaspora

  • Published date: March 27, 2018

What happens to values and culture if Filipinos who live away from the country forget to remember them as they live out their lives? And if values were maintained, which ones would Filipinos NOT give up because they would no longer recognize themselves as a Filipino? Have traditions been important enough to transmit to their children? AND would these children even value them? From birth to death, to marriage and children, to finding identity and pride, Pinay’s women writers explore the beliefs, attitudes, practices, and rituals they drew on to deal with life’s transitions. One of the Filipino Association of University Women’s (FAUW) goals is to promote an understanding of Filipino culture. This collection of lived experiences and personal accounts of our women aims to contribute to future generations’ insights into the different aspects of a Pinay’s life in diaspora. Perhaps you’ll recognize yourself in these experiences. Maybe you have your own tale to tell. And if you want to share your experience, email us at!
