Reshaping the Filipina Image Online

Nothing angers me more than when I see all these images online degrading Filipinas and all of you know what I’m talking about.  Many of my posts this past year were about trying to empower Pinays and combat the stereotypes of Filipinas in mainstream media.  That’s why I was glad I found out about FilipinaImages.com from a friend’s blog.  The Filipina Images was created to sustain the Filipina Image Online Campaign.  To learn more about how you can join this campaign to reshape the Filipina image please refer to the following.

From FilipinaImages.com:

The word “Filipina” on the internet showcases websites that are top-heavy on her physical attributes, dating availability, or marriage suitability. What’s wrong with this picture? Nothing and everything.

If you google or yahoo search the word, “Indian,” there is no reference to an Indian woman in the first 10 results. Likewise with the word, “American” or “Russian.” No woman-related entry either. Type “Filipino.” Chances are that the prominent entry you will find on the first page showcases the keywords, “Filipino girls, Filipina dating, Philippine women.” Search for “Filipina.” You’ll most likely notice that six out of 10 sites are NOT devoted to the advancement and accomplishments of the Filipina.
