The Filipina Matters

I’m back to serious blogging business since I’ve recently finished my thesis on the online representations of the Filipina. This morning, fresh from a sorely missed 8-hour sleep, the first thing that caught my attention was Inquirer’s business section that features a graph on the Working Filipina.

Working Filipinas

Women comprised 38 percent of the country’s total labor force of 35.2 million and majority of the 12.4 million employed women are between 25-44 years old.

Quick count:
25-34 yrs old: 3.1 million
35-44 yrs old: 3.0 million
15-24 yrs old: 2.2 million

I can’t believe I’m soon going to be part of this, but first I have to find work. :P
