General Workshop: What is Pinayism?

You have to come out to our workshop to find out! Just kidding.

Pinayism is a feminist praxis coined by Professor Allyson Tintiangco-Cubales. It is a process of self-reflection, decolonization, revolution, and self-determination. It aims to put the pinay at the center of dialogue and examine the intersections where race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, religion, spirituality, diaspora, citizenship, migration, and love cross. it draws from a multitude of theories and serves to empower and uplift Pinays physically, mentally, spiritually, academically, and politically.

Where did Pinayism originate from?

Professor Allyson Titiangco-Cubales.

Allyson Tintiangco-Cubales is an associate professor of Asian American Studies and affiliated faculty in the Educational Leadership program at San Francisco State University. She is also the director of Pinay-Educational Partnerships and senior researcher with the Educational Equity initiative at the Cesar Chavez Institute. She is also an ethnic studies curriculum consultant for the San Francisco Unified School District.

Why is it important?

It is important because it tells a story in itself. The Filipino woman is strong hearted, is a hard worker, and often gets overlooked. Pinayism is as important as feminism because it shows equality in our culture and our respect for our womyn.

Is there such thing as Pinoyism?

No, but we can also practice Pinayism with pinoys. By bringing Filipino men into the conversation, we can show how feminism is not just for womyn, but for everybody who wants to achieve social justice and true liberation.
