Pinayism is a process, place, production, and pedagogy that aims to look at the complexities and intersections where race/ethnicity, class, gender, sexuality, spirituality, religion, body image, educational status, age, place of birth, mental health, diasporic migration, citizenship, nationalism, globalization, transnationalism, reproductive labor, productive labor, motherhood, sisterhood, daughterhood, partnership and love cross. This is better understand how Pinay identities, perspectives, and multiple subjectivities are born. Pinayism also looks at how all these same variables work together to create situations in which Pinays live and the treatment they face in the United States and throughout the world. In the study of these intersections, crossroads can be established to expose and explain conflict, complexity, collectivity, and creativity, in the lived experiences of Pinays.
