It is easy and lazy to be frank to think that Bata Bata Pa no Ka Ginawa is a recycled Dekada 70 Bautista s earlier novel I almost did just because Lea the main character is a mother like Amanda was in DekadaIt was made immediately apparent however that Lea is a modern and unconventional woman in a the romantic sense with one husband in marriage and another in bed and b the socio political sense she is an activist and works in a human rights organization She is a woman whom society and even readers would not approve of based on their boxed beliefs of how women should act behave and live To drive home the point almost everything Lea does is initially repulsive to the reader thank you patriarchy and internalized misogyny And although there is nothing that Lea did that the other men in the novel did not do Lea alone is under a microscope not only because she is the protagonist but also because that is how it feels to be a woman in this society That even though Lea is a modern woman who comparatively enjoys freedoms than the older generation she is still not spared from the feudal patriarchal views imposed by her husband her lover and even her fellow women In short she is not truly free Women are not truly free not in 1983 when this book was written and not even today Not when contemporary society still blames the woman when she is raped or sexually harassed Not when women in many parts of the world are still trafficked to become brides or sex slaves Not when women are told to dress one way or another Not when many women still have lower wages just because of her gender Not when women s labor is considered cheap and oftentimes invisible The list goes on In Bautista s own words Ang buhay pala ay ibang iba sa mga palabas sa tv Life truly is different from what we see on tv ie that women are independent now and therefore should not wantBesides Bautista s feminist tone should not be the only takeaway from this novel She touches on workers rights the oppression of the poor that kills not one person but the whole family the corrupt governments that ignite revolutions and the disillusionment and awakening of the masses as well as the apatheticIt is easy and sexist to be frank to think that Bata Bata Pa no Ka Ginawa is another feminist book another book about women or another book about mothers As if our stories are not worth immortalization or that we are merely given privileges or free passes to tell them Why shouldn t writers write about women Or mothers Because who are you without yours Spark (Stronger, easy and lazy to be frank to think that Bata Bata Pa no Ka Ginawa is a recycled Dekada 70 Bautista s Wonder Woman and Philosophy earlier novel I almost did just because Lea the main character is a mother like Amanda was in DekadaIt was made immediately apparent however that Lea is a modern and unconventional woman in a the romantic sense with one husband in marriage and another in bed and b the socio political sense she is an activist and works in a human rights organization She is a woman whom society and Sozialismus Und Kapitalistische Gesellschaftsordnung even readers would not approve of based on their boxed beliefs of how women should act behave and live To drive home the point almost Sponsor.

Bata Bata Pa'no Ka Ginawa?

G kailangan Lahat ng panahon ay hindi panahon ng mga takot at pagtitmpi; lahat ng panahon ay panahon ng pagpapasiy. One of the best I read this year this novel is a powerful commentary on motherhood single parenthood marriage desire and a woman s role in the turbulent period near the tail end of the Marcos dictatorshipThe novel offers a sharp rebuke of the double standards of a patriarchal society as well as the limits of the bourgeois individualist illusion of free love which also puts women in a vulnerable position vis a vis menLike other classic Filipino novels of Lualhati Bautista this one also shares he same characteristic juxtaposition of mounting personal crisis with the larger background of exploding social contradictions Bata Bata Pa no Ka Ginawa is a must read
