Vietnam Women’s Union welcomes new chairwoman as Congress ends
Posted: Oct 09,2007

The Viet Nam Women’s Union greeted its new chairwoman, Nguyen Thi Thanh Hoa, a member of the Party’s Central Committee, as the 10th National Women’s Congress concluded after three days.

Hoa was previously the Union’s vice-chairwoman.

Nearly 1,200 women representatives from all over the country also voted in four new vice-chairwomen, Dang Thi Ngoc Thinh, Nguyen Thi Kim Thuy, Hoang Thi Ai Nhien and H’ Ngam Nie K’Dam.

Women representatives passed new tasks and goals for the union in the next five-year period. They include helping Vietnamese women continue their education, make happy homes, prevent and fight against social evils, achieve gender equality, reduce poverty, receive vocational training, and know how to teach and feed their children.

The meeting, attended by two key woman figures, Vice President Nguyen Thi Doan and National Assembly Deputy Chairwoman Tong Thi Phong, and the Viet Nam Fatherland Front’s President Pham The Duyet, raised more than VND90 million ($5,600) to help victims in last week’s Can Tho Bridge collapse.

General Vo Nguyen Giap sent flowers and a congratulation letter to Vietnamese women in the meeting.

"... From the beginning of the first century A.D., when the two Trung Sisters rose up to fight the enemy and save the nation, until now, whenever our country has faced danger, our women have contributed whatever they could toward the cause of national liberation.

Our people are grateful that our mothers from South and North alike have borne and raised our nation's generation of heroes....

Under the Socialist system, tens of thousands of women have become specialists in different fields and, as cadre, serve as directors and vice-directors of factories, leaders of farming cooperatives, presidents of People’s Committees, and general secretaries of Party Cells....

And so, the women of Vietnam from ancient times until now, from South to North, from young to old, are truly heroes ..."

(Excerpted from President Ho Chi Minh's speech on the 36th Anniversary of Vietnam Women's Union 20 October 1966)
