Chapter Summary

As a contextual theology on Filipino women FToS is obviously dialogical first with the contextual theology in the Philippines. Among the various contemporary theological efforts in the Philippines the Theology of Struggle or ToS stands out as the best possible partner for dialogue. Just as Williams herself engaged Black liberation theology in dialogue with womanist theology to see where the womanist material "fits" and where Black liberation theology can expand for womanist theology to "fit," this chapter will undertake a similar endeavor. It will engage ToS in a dialogue with FToS to see where the FToS material fits and ascertain how ToS might go forward. Three areas will be the focus of this dialogue namely contextualization, biblical hermeneutics, and religious and cultural critique.

Keywords: biblical hermeneutics; contextualization; Feminist Theology of Struggle (FToS); Filipino women domestic workers; migration; Philippines; religious and cultural critique
