TO THE YOUNG WOMEN OF MALOLOS
AN ESSAY BY DR. JOSE P. RIZAL
PATRICK JAMES D. CLEMENTE
A woman, what is a woman? Woman plays a very important role in our society. They are the light of the family, the one who is responsible for the acts of their children, the first teacher of each and every child. But what do you think will happen to a country if almost every woman is acting like a slave? Being manipulated? Believes in fake sancity and no power by themselves? If that is the case, then what would they be? They would be a big failure. Once in the history of the Phillipines, there is a man who opened the eyes of each and every women.. it was doctor Rizal. He did it by the way of sending a message to our country women…..
Jose Rizal’s legacy to Filipino women is embodied in his famous essay entitled, “To the Young Women of Malolos,” where he addresses all kinds of women – mothers, wives, the unmarried, etc. and expresses everything that he wishes them to keep in mind.
“To the Young Women of Malolos” was written by Rizal when he was in London, in response to the request of Marcelo H. del Pilar. The essay was originally written in Tagalog then later on translated to English. The essay contains inspirational messages for the women of our country. It also points out, almost everything about the issue of mistreating the women in our country. Rizal wrote the essay to open up the eyes of our country women.

Rizal wrote the essay very smooth and enough for the women of our country to see what is really happening and what should be done.
