Statue of Vietnamese women inaugurated in Hanoi
Posted: Oct 19,2009

The statue of Women of ‘Three Responsibilities’ was inaugurated in the centre of Phung town, Dan Phuong district, Hanoi on October 8 to mark the 1000th anniversary of Thang Long – Hanoi.

Three responsibilities’ is a movement launched during the anti-US war of aggression, in which Vietnamese women assumed responsibilities for the household, production and fighting while their men were on the battle front.

The 5.2-metre stone statue sculptured by Le Hong Phong depicting a proud Vietnamese woman who is carrying a gun on her shoulder and holding a baby in her arms. This statue is considered as a symbol of Vietnamese women who strive to excel at State and house work and is also served as a preparation for the 1000th anniversary of Thang Long – Hanoi.

"... 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)
