Commentary: Vietnamese women have shined in Vietnamese history as Vietnamese history has known more wars than peace time. Vietnamese women’s participation in the defense of the country has always been critical that a common phrase is well known and illustrated the heroism of women: “Giặc đến nhà đàn bà cũng đánh” or “Aggressors are at the front door, women will also fight.”
Today, female military and defence people actively participate in many jobs that used to be exclusive for men.
Military and defence women are seen in many military and defence areas. They take the positions requiring high qualifications and expertise, such as scientific research in laboratories, medical treatment of patients in hospitals and teaching at schools; directly enroll in military training in active units; and they produce and maintain weapons, ammunitions and equipment in defence factories. They indeed further beautify the image of “Uncle Ho’s Soldier” in the new revolutionary era.
By contrast to men, women have some physical and psychological limitations, they still try hard to fulfil their tasks as well as men, and in some areas, they even work better than men.
PANO would like to introduce several beautiful images of female military people:
