Start 2014 right by helping us rebuild Tacloban.

Women in Solidarity: REBUILD Tacloban Philippines for Filipina Women & Girls (after Typhoon Yolanda) - Jan. 23, 2014 @ Credo

Please join FWN at a fundraising reception to help REBUILD Tacloban Philippines hosted by Bay Area Women's Groups in Solidarity with Filipina Women and Girls.

We need your help to get their jobs back as businesses have been severely damaged and we have to find a way for these families to have a source of income. Our hearts go out to the Women of Candahug, the "Village of Widows" - the husbands, fathers, and sons stayed behind while the women and children escaped to higher group when Typhoon Haiyan swooped in at 200mph, surging the waves as high as 16 ft.

Your contribution and 100% of proceeds will support the long-term rebuilding efforts through the help of Feed the Hungry Philippines - their volunteers and staff are now on-the-ground doing relief work.

RSVP Now! -  https://WomenForTacloban.eventbrite.com

After more than four decades under Roe. v. Wade, many of society's assumptions about abortion haven't changed.

What the Hell is Filipino Food? Here are the 7 Dishes You Need To Know.

Ramen is losing track of its roots. Thai and Chinese foods are soooo old news. As the US looks for its new East Asian food obsession, signs are pointing to a boom in Filipino food, a melting pot cuisine that takes elements of Chinese and Malaysian, and mixes in a huge amount of Spanish influence left over from the colonial days.  Click to see more.
