Ana P. Santos
Ana P. Santos is an independent journalist based in Manila, Philippines. Her work focuses mainly on HIV/AIDS and reproductive health, gender issues, and the inequalities that arise from being the only country in the world that forbids divorce.
As the Pulitzer Center's 2014 Persephone Miel fellow, Santos wrote about the hundreds of thousands of Filipino women who leave their children behind to work abroad as nannies and domestic workers. A motherless generation continues to grow as more and more women join the migrant work force.
