The first book of its kind written from the feminist perspective. "Constructing the Filipina" offers a wealth of information and insight on the impact of women's magazines on women's consciousness and how women writers sought to reflect the need for women's empowerment. Concentrating on newspapers and magazines from the late Spanish to the early American regimes, the book explores the period when women of the Philippines found themselves liberated to a large extent from their unsung role as homemakers of old.

Encanto is the former Dean of the College of Mass Communication and a UP Professor of Journalism. She was a Wein International Scholar and a Fulbright Travel Grantee at Brandeis University in Massachusetts. She received her Ph.D. in Philippine Studies from UP. She is a regular contributor to the Philippine Journalism Review and her research interests are Philippine press history, feminism and gender issues in Philippine media, and popular culture.
