Vietnam Women’s Museum
About the museum
Despite being a patriarchal society, Viet Nam still reserves a special, if not sacred, place to honor Vietnamese women. Not only is October 20th is made Vietnam’s Women day but there also exists a museum dedicated to women.
The museum displays rather recent history of women, such as women and ethnicity; women and the national struggle; Vietnam women association and the feminism; women and traditional costumes; and women’s cultural traits expressed through handicrafts.
