The book is the first of its kind in Philippine scholarship. It chronicles the evolution of Philippine literature simultaneously in terms of medium (English) and gender (women). In addition, the book proposes hypotheses regarding the whys and wherefores of this specific segment of our literature.

Dr. Manlapaz's "painstaking research is in ample evidence here, not just in the biographical accounts of the writers, but--and especially--in the discussion of the critical reception of their works. Manlapaz skillfully weaves writers' and critics' voices into her seamless narrative of the creative and sometimes conflicting ways in which the Filipino women writers responded in their writings to the sociopolitical and historical forces and situated themselves within and against the Philippine 'literary tradition.'"

Among the women featured here are: Paz Marquez Benitez, Paz Latorena, Loreto Paras-Sulit, Angela Manalang-Gloria, Trinidad Tarrosa-Subido, Edith Tiempo, Virginia Moreno, Tita Lacambra-Ayala, Ophelia Alcantara Dimalanta, Estrella Alfon, Kerima Polotan-Tuvera, Aida Rivera-Ford, Gilda Cordero-Fernando, Linda Ty-Casper, Myrna Peņa-Reyes, Merlie Alunan, Marra PL. Lanot, Rowena Tiempo-Torrevillas, Marjorie Evasco, Elsa Coscolluela, Merlinda Bobis, Fatima Lim-Wilson, Luisa Igloria, Lina Espina-Moore, Ester Vallado DaRoy, Azucena Grajo Uranza, Cristina Pantoja-Hidalgo, Ninotchka Rosca, Jessica Hagedorn, Cecilia Manguerra-Brainard, Arlene Chai, Gina Apostol, Michelle Skinner, Tess Uriza Holthe, Rosario Lucero, Ines Taccad Cammayo, Marianne Villanueva, Nita Umali-Berthelsen, Joy Dayrit, Jessica Zafra, Connie Jan Maraan, Susan Lara, Lakambini Sitoy, Norma Miraflor, Reine Arcache Melvin, Erma Cuizon, and Nadine Sarreal.
