THEME: The once mere role of women in the society has diversified. This has been clearly exemplified by Lea’s role in Lualhati Bautista’s novel, Bata Bata…Paano Ka Ginawa?. Before, women were stereotyped as females who are to stay in houses to do chores, take care of children and their husbands. They were not allowed to participate in manly conversations regarding work and politics. They didn’t have equal rights like men did. And they were not given the chance to speak up for themselves to have their own stands. Now women, instead of staying home doing chores, can be seen in the men’s workplace. Instead of staying back from conversations, they are now heard when speaking. They are now given more space and freedom to have their respective and distinctive roles in the society. They are now seen fighting for their rights and not minding consequences. They now fight against abuses, injustices and equal their levels as to men. Women are not seen holding back their thoughts and getting scared of being heard. They are starting to prove and earn their right to be treated as equals and worthy counterparts of men.
