There are a number of instances when our stories, as women, as Filipinas, are lost and relegated to the outskirts of history. Pinay HERstories hopes to reclaim the Filipina/Filipina-American narrative by collecting fragments of the shared Pinay experience. Join us for a night of readings and performances with local Pinay artists who undo “The Myth of the Perfect Pinay.”

You can also meet the women of Filipinas for Rights and Empowerment (FiRE) who have been organizing several local and global campaigns. Learn more about our current programs, our allied organizations, and how Pinays are building a community, here, in the New York City area.
