Monki salutes sisterhood with Woman, Create
We teamed up with Marika Callangan, Filipino artist and founder of Woman, Create to launch an exclusive t-shirt design that celebrates the diversity of being a woman!
Woman, Create is a Philippine-based art studio that advocates for intersectional feminism and empowerment for Filipino women and creatives. The inspiring illustration, captures the diversity of the Filipina identity and challenging the status quo. The accompanying text, ‘Pilipinas’, translates to ‘female form’.
“While this work does not represent the full range of our identities and character, it aims to reclaim those who are often underrepresented - whether in media or in the general conversation of feminism and women empowerment.” – Marika Callangan
The t-shirt print will be available from March 10 at the brand’s Philippine-based stores: SM Megamall and SM Mall of Asia. The illustration will also take over the store windows for shoppers to admire as a bold salute to sisterhood.
Meet our brand ambassadors Gita Gumabao, Laureen Uy, Em Millan and Issa Pressman!
We (virtually) sat down with them to discuss all things sisterhood and empowerment.

Might sound gross but I can burp on command.
I dream of:
The old normal. When people were more carefree and we didn’t have to use masks.
Secret spot in my city which I love going to:
Not a secret but I love walking around Poblacion in Makati. Apart from it being my neighborhood, people are always so nice and welcoming. There’s a strong sense of community and everyone is always down to help each other out.
I dance to:
EVERYTHING. As long as the music is good, I can’t help but dance.
This makes me smile:
People being kind to each other 🙂
My favourite artist:
It’s hard for me to pick one artist out of my library because I have too many favourites. But if I really had to, it would be Erykah Badu. I think I have memorized most of her tracks from start to finish. I can listen to her any time of the day in any mood I’m in.
Early bird or a night owl:
Night owl. I feel more alive and productive after 7pm.
First thing I think of when I wake up:
It’s either I think of food (cause who doesn’t) or a song pops up in my head the minute I wake up.
My Monki playlist in three words:
In the words of TLC - Crazy, Sexy, Cool <3
