- A US magazine has featured the story of a Filipina named "Lola," who was a slave of one family for 56 years.
- The writer, Alex Tizon, was a Pullitzer price winner for journalism.
- The article has received a lot of criticisms from foreigners.
Alex Tizon wrote a feature story entitled, "My Family's Slave."
It was featured on "The Atlantic."
The author narrated how his family took in an 18-year-old girl named Eudocia Tomas Pulido during World War 2, and became their slave for 56 years.
Although they did not really call her a slave, the way she lived her life prove otherwise.
They called her Lola since she was a distant relative.
She did not have any allowance and did not even have her own living quarters.
She can hardly sit and gets scolded for the slightest mistake.
She wakes up before others do and would sleep late trying to finish up all her chores.
She wasn't even given the time to go home when her parents died.
It wasn't until Lola was already very old that the author finally took her into his home.
