*Abstract*



This paper probes the tensions inherent in contemporary notions of
successful womanhood in the Philippines. Drawing on ethnographic fieldwork
on Siquijor Island in the Central Visayas, it explores the ways in which
courtship, marriage and pregnancy are culturally constructed as both a
necessity to the proper realization of a Filipina’s womanhood and a threat
to her self-actualization, livelihood, her role as a daughter and sister
and even to some extent her role as a responsible wife and mother. For the
‘ideal’ contemporary Filipino woman, timing is everything – ideals of
education, employment, dating, marriage and having children collide in
women’s in early adulthood, placing sometimes enormous pressures on young
women. This paper asks why marriage and pregnancy are construed as such
points of rupture in the lives of Siquijodnon women and how people
negotiate these ideals in the practice of their day-to-day lives.

the changing roles and aspirations of young women on the Central Visayan

earlier PhD research which considered local notions of ‘development’
(kalamboan) on Siquijor and how these shape local identities and life
trajectories. Dr. Bulloch is a former Visiting Research Associate of the
