Uniting Against the Tides:Filipino ‘Shefarers’ Organising Against Sexual Harassment
By Lucia Tangi
Abstract: In the Philippines, seafaring has been associated with men since the sixteenth century. However, in the 1990s, Filipino women started to enter this male-dominated world. But it has not been smooth sailing. Based on interviews with Filipino women
seafarers, this article shows how they have experienced various forms of sexual harassment from their male colleagues and senior officers. Women seafarers who have been victims of sexual harassment have been unable to file complaints against their aggressor/s because of technical difficulties in pursuing a case, especially when the incidents happen on board international ships
and the perpetrators are foreign nationals.

about migrants from their countries of origin and from their communities of temporary and permanent settlement. …”

Karamihan sa mga bata sa Burgos East Elementary School ay kuntento nang marunong makapagbasa at makapagsulat, pagkatapos ay titigil nang mag-aral upang magbanat ng buto.

At the end of authoritarian rule in the Philippines, the first public access BBS (bulletin board system) based in the country – named the First- Fil RBBS – went online in 1986. Later, a network to connect several BBSes in Metro Manila was formed – The Philippine FidoNet exchange. (1)
By 1991, the Internet had come to the Philippines. Transnational companies like Intel, Motorola, and Texas Instruments as well as local companies like PLDT, had data network gateways where they exchanged emails and documents.
The development of two browsers – Mosaic in 1992 and Netscape in 1994 – revolutionized the Web. Suddenly, navigating the Web became very easy. These were immediately followed by Opera and Internet Explorer browsers. The Web had become global.
