Being a woman (whether biological or by choice) is difficult in the Philippines. It’s sad, maddening, and tiring to fight for our rights to be enforced and respected, to be treated fairly, to be seen as equals. And it’s painful to still have to explain it all to people who live in their respective sexist, misogynist, and chauvinist bubbles.
But when given the chance, I still try to explain things — and 2nd Opinion gave me that chance for its June 2017 issue. Read my opinion piece, “On the State of Womanhood in the Philippines: Contraceptives, Consent, and Chauvinism” online, or in the magazine, now available on newsstands and on Magzter!
Bonus: Spider-Man: Homecoming‘s leading man Tom Holland is on the cover!
Spider-Man made a glorious return into Marvel’s fold with “Captain America: Civil War.” Now, he gets his story rebooted with the talented Tom Holland wearing the iconic suit. We hear more about the new Spidey’s tale ahead of next month’s premiere of #SpiderManHomecoming. On top of that, we go on a city-to-sea drive with the @bmwphilippines X1, check out architectural gems, the best smartphones of 2017’s first half, and many more! Can’t wait to read more?
