Excellent Reflection on the Film, Insiang

Great job, Joshua Javier!

Different Women, Same Realization: Two Tales of Feminist Awakening

insiang

I shall divide this post into four parts: in the first part, I shall discuss how the article entitled “I Am Angry Because You Are Unjust: A Filipino Woman’s Awakening to Feminism” can help us to fully understand Insiang’s conduct not only before being raped by Dado, but also after the outrageous incident. In the second part, I shall state the definition of cultural double-bind based on the said article and reveal how Filipino women seem to be liberated at first glance but actually the exact opposite on a deeper level. In the third part, I shall enumerate and discuss the ways written in the article on how women can cope with pain and oppression and construct Insiang’s potential future though the lens of these ways. Finally, in the fourth part, I shall discuss how feminism has been beneficial not only for Filipinas, but also for the Filipino people in general.
