Posted: Jan 15,2019
VWU President Nguyen Thi Thu Ha and UN Women Viet Nam Head of Office Elisa Fernandez Saenz sign Letter of Collaboration

On the morning of December 19th, 2018, VWU President Nguyen Thi Thu Ha and UN Women Viet Nam Head of Office Elisa Fernandez Saenz signed a letter of collaboration for gender equality and women empowerment with the purpose of providing a framework of cooperation and facilitating the collaboration between the two organizations in the areas of common interest.

Accordingly, the two parties will work together to contribute to ending gender-based violence against women; economically empowering women, including ethnic minority women, women with disabilities, women living with HIV/AIDS, female survivors of gender-based violence and other vulnerable women groups; and reducing disaster risks and improving climate change adaptation in a gender-responsive manner. To achieve the goals, in parallel with direct interventions for the women beneficiaries, the two sides will focus on strengthening the capacity of the VWU staff in the respective cooperation fields.

Over the past 15 years, the VWU has had cooperation with UN Women (known as UNIFEM previously) to promote gender equality and empower women through a number of joint activities and projects on increasing women’s participation in leadership and management, preventing violence against women and girls, disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation, SDGs consultation and review, nutrition and food security and etc. The Letter to Collaboration marks the improvement of the two parties’ cooperation into a strategic partnership.

"... 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)
