It would be hard to say Happy Women's Day to those Vietnamese women, as they do not seem to be happy. . Lots of them spend their long days hard-working in the ricefields, on the streets, in the markets ... Many of them still work every day despite their age of 70, or even 80! . . Each of them might have their own sad stories, very sad, that they just can't say out loud, for many reasons. . They may be farmers who have lost all their farmland due to golf courses or horses racing facilities projects that took thousands hectares of ricefields. . They may be fishing women who lose their jobs due to bans on fishing during a so-called dead fishes catastrophe , while some large companies made huge profits thanks to their monopoly over the fishing markets. . Unable to find another job, they ended up joining the army of street vendors (and hundreds of thousands younger people who have no choice but joining the labour export migration, working in very bad conditions in Japan, Taiwan, South Korea, Malaysia and many other countries). . Others have to continue to work even when retired just because their pension is not enough to survive when prices of everything have rocketed due to inflation and economic bubbles, while at the top of the scheme, the super-rich are getting richer.. . These are other facets behind beautiful images of this country trying to attract tourists to boost it's economy. . Those Vietnamese women deserve much better. A Women's day just can't do anything for them. . . #WomenDay #Vietnam #women
