Searching for Filipina Sisterhood

(p.145) Chapter Seven Searching for Filipina Sisterhood
Elusive Belonging

Minjeong Kim

University of Hawai'i Press

Drawing on the literature on immigrants’ intra-ethnic solidarity and conflict, Chapter 7 examines on Filipinas’ relationships with their co-ethnics by focusing on three different spaces. First, the chapter shows Filipinas’ intimate, quotidian interactions with one another where both sisterly care and group image anxiety exist simultaneously. Second, the chapter describes the stories of Filipinas’ departures from their marital homes. Lastly, the chapter goes beyond the local co-ethnic setting to the scene of Annual Filipino Community Day, the region’s largest co-ethnic space for Filipino immigrants. These different spaces illustrate the generative process through which “Filipinos in Korea” as the community and the identity has been constructed.
