NINOTCHKA ROSCA is a Philippine-born New York-resident writer who thus refers to herself as a transnational Filipina. She had written and published seven books—short story collections, novels and non-fiction. She is also an organizer and advocate for women’s liberation and is engaged in the study and codification of the theory and practice of transnational and intersectional feminism.

Her two novels, State of War and Twice Blessed, are considered classics of modern Philippine literature, with the second receiving the American Book Award for Excellence in Literature.  She has written so many articles and essays and statements she has lost count.
