dc.description.abstractExploited, vulnerable and lonely. These are the dominant images of Filipino women in Singapore’s public consciousness, constructed through stories of abuse and suffering of foreign domestic helpers in the mainstream media. Other than this, little is known about the expanding diaspora of close to 160,000 Filipinos living and working in Singapore. While 70% of them are employed as domestic helpers, statistics in recent years are shifting rapidly towards a new migration demographics of white collared Filipinos. It is about time that the word “Filipina” isn’t so easily followed by the word “maid” in one breath. In the following biographies, we go behind the doors of Filipino women in Singapore to capture intimate accounts of their lives here, their yearning for love, friendship and home. No matter which far-flung corner of the globe Filipinos are on, the bonds with their kababayan, or countrymen in Tagalog, remain close to their hearts.en_US
