This compilation on the babaylan, the Filipina's foremother, culminates a year-long celebration of the feminist centennial in the Philippines (1905-2005). As the title, Centennial Crossings, Readings on Babaylan Feminism in the Philippines, suggest, the babaylan, although ancient and unknown to most feminists in the country, is alive, and lingers as the "political unconscious" of women in this part of the world.

It is one intention of this book to popularize the referent "babaylan" in the mainstream of Philippine society, especially among Pinay feminists who probably think, read, write, and speak in English. The widespread ignorance on the babaylan ironically starts at the upper class that distinguishes itself for being highly-educated Filipinos. However, even women of the middle-class are not familiar with the babaylan because it is chiefly not found in History textbooks. Because of its indigenous nature, it is perhaps better understood among the masses of women who may have some knowledge of it in greater proportion.
