Vietnamese women in the past and now
Aside from International Women’s Day, Vietnamese Women’s Day, which is celebrated on November 20th, is the second chance in the year to express thankfulness to the women for their contribution to the family and the community’s advancement. If you embrace teaching jobs in Ho Chi Minh City or anywhere in Vietnam, you will probably have an opportunity to participate in many activities to show gratitude to all the women around you.
Over many years, Vietnamese women have played an indispensable role in most aspects, including Vietnamese history, family life, and even the future.
We are in the middle of October, according to the Gregorian calendar, which means just several days left until Vietnamese Women’s Day. We will look at Vietnamese women’s images in the past and now and express our admiration for their sacrifice.
1. Vietnamese women’s role in the past
Although most Vietnamese women have been affected by gender stereotypes, we can’t deny their diverse roles in warfare both at home and in uniform to fight against the enemies to protect Vietnam’s sovereignty and peace.
Some famous Vietnamese women that you might have heard of at least once:
- Trung Sisters (Hai Ba Trung) are regarded as national heroines of Vietnam
- Madame Nguyen Thi Dinh is known for being the first female general of the Vietnam People’s Army during the Vietnam War and the first female Vice President of Vietnam
- Nguyen Thi Kim Lai is famous for escorting an American pilot in 1965,…
All of them were supposed to be small yet fraught with strong powers and a fearless spirit.
They not only kept their family life happy by paying attention to even the smallest details but also made a significant contribution to the success of Vietnam during wartime in order to preserve national peace. Similar to the heroic soldiers who fought for Vietnamese independence in the past, they deserve to be praised by the next generation.
To highlight their merits, their names have appeared in many historical lessons and on streets in Vietnam. Additionally, they have become role models for children to follow in various aspects, such as demonstrating strength and an indomitable spirit.
Teaching jobs in Ho Chi Minh City gives you more opportunities to have a deep-informed understanding of Vietnam’s history, and know the origin of many streets’ names in Saigon, such as Hai Ba Trung Street, Nguyen Thi Dinh Street, Suong Nguyet Anh Street, etc.
2. Vietnamese women’s role in modern life
In recent years, Vietnamese women have been responsible for many positions in work and Vietnam’s government, such as that of Nguyen Thi Kim Ngan, a Vietnamese economist, and politician, and many Vietnamese women have gained achievements in both political and economic aspects. That is the result of continuous changes in the perspective of society and their endeavor to prove themselves in all roles in their lives.
In the field of education, teachers, including female teachers and those who get teaching jobs in Ho Chi Minh City, play an essential part in the path of bridging children to international knowledge and sharpening their characteristics.
Despite doing great work, they don’t forget their responsibility to care for their family, provide strong support for their children on their learning journey, help their family succeed at work, and spend the rest of their precious time on hobbies.
3. Vietnamese women’s role in the future
Not being afraid to challenge themselves and constantly upgrading from learning are the keys that Vietnamese women can use to open many new doors in the future. Vietnamese women have upheld these traditional virtues for many years while simultaneously acquiring additional competencies to adapt to societal changes and improve their lives. As a result, they are capable of assuming a wide range of essential job positions in society’s progress and becoming more independent in the world.
On this special occasion, Vietnamese Women’s Day, we hope all women will cherish the day with gratitude from others and be delighted not just in this time but also in their entire lives.
In addition, the Vietnamese have a lot of celebrations to honor specific social classes, such as Vietnamese Teachers’ Day, Vietnamese Family’s Day, and so on.
