The Association of Filipinas, Feminists Fighting Imperialism, Re-feudalization, and Marginalization (AF3IRM), is a national organization of women engaged in transnational feminist, anti-imperialist activism. AF3IRM is committed to militant movement-building from the United States and effects change through grassroots organizing, trans-ethnic alliance building education, advocacy and direct action.
AF3IRM is the launching of a new organization, based on a comprehensive analysis of class, race, gender, and sexuality focused on conducting militant movement-building from the United States with a transnational, feminist perspective. For the past 20 years, Gabriela Network (GABNet) has engaged in its work from a national democratic perspective, emphasizing support and solidarity for the Philippine movement. Now, after assessing our work, we have moved toward a comprehensive theory-building and practice based on the concrete conditions of our own home territory, the United States, in assessment of and full knowledge of the essence and specific characteristics of our oppression and exploitation as women first; as imported labor or children of such of Philippine ancestry second; and as women of a distinct ethnic minority.
