Work and Family Roles of Women in Ho Chi Minh City
Phuong, Tran Phi
International Education Journal, v8 n2 p284-292 Nov 2007
This study aims to point out the differences between the North and the South of Vietnam, more particularly, Saigon and Hanoi, in terms of family and work roles of women. It helps to explain the ways women in Ho Chi Minh City reconstruct their reproduction role, the attitudes of Southern husbands towards household tasks and the husband-wife relationship in the Southern family. The literature in Vietnamese studies shows that the regional differences remain considerable. Studies on Ho Chi Minh City therefore must take into account the geographical, historical, cultural, social and economic context. Even the notion of "family in Ho Chi Minh city" cannot be understood as the same notion of "family in the South" due to the differences between urban and rural life.
