The establishment of archaeology as a professional discipline in the Philippines was heavily male dominated. This issue is so pervasive that even when female representation increased, especially the accessibility of graduate degree in archaeology and related fields, male archaeologist still overshadows the works of women archaeologists. This panel highlights the contribution of female archaeologists in the Philippines, discussing issues of bias, accessibility, and opportunities. The panel will also talk about how gendered perspectives make archaeological practice more meaningful.
