Gawad Kalinga founder Tony Meloto responds to critics

Tony Meloto broke his silence on Tuesday, May 26 to respond to critics over  his perceived “sexist and elitist” views. Meloto specifically refers to a speech he gave at the University of Hawaii in April to a group of Filipino-American academics, which was received with mixed reviews. A statement by the University of Hawaii-Center for Philippine Studies (UH-CPS) called Meloto’s speech and perspective “sexist” and “elitist”, and made reference to Meloto’s views on the beauty of Filipina women and why they should marry foreigners. But Meloto says his words were taken out of context. Rappler published the full text of his response.
