The Filipino Migration Experience

Cornell University Press

This chapter discusses the struggles of Filipino when it comes to their status as an ethnic minority group. Case studies reveal how Filipino migrant advocates understood intersectionality and were able to transcend their own class positions to address the issues faced by youth and women of Filipino ethnicities. The chapter references Operation Manong in Hawaii and the Filipino Women’s Working Party in Australia as examples. It includes how Filipina activism impacted domestic violence cases in Australia. Data from the migrant archives illustrate the diversity, scope, and serious nature of the trials faced by Filipino migrants.
