Filipina 'food heroes'
In celebration of International Women's Month, humanitarian and development organization Oxfam has come up with a list of 10 extraordinary Filipina "Food Heroes." Read more...

On Monday, March 18, members of the Filipina Women's Network celebrated Women's History Month at the California State Capitol with Appointments Secretary Mona Pasquil, Senator Leland Yee, and Assemblymember Rob Bonta. In a meeting with Mona Pasquil, several FWN members in attendance inquired about appointment opportunities, which is great because the Filipina community could use more representation in state politics. If you're not familiar with Mona Pasquil, then you should be (she was on the cover of FWN's V-Diaries Magazine 2010, 7th Anniversary Issue)! Mona is the Appointments Secretary for California Governor Jerry Brown, in which she is in charge of overseeing who the governor appoints to join the California bureaucracy. If you or anyone you know is interested in becoming appointed, you can visit: http://www.gov.ca.gov/m_appointments.php
