GENDER AND DEVELOPMENT

Women’s Positive Image to be promoted in school textbooks

Future textbook curriculum will enhance women’s positive image to contribute to education and communication on gender equality. 

 

Vietnam - Spain cooperation for gender equality and women’s rights promotion in Vietnam

On March 27th 2014, at the Center for Women and Development, the Vietnam Women’s Union (VWU), Spanish Embassy and Spanish Agency for International Cooperation Development (AECID) in Hanoi organized a ceremony “Spain and Vietnam: Partners in Development” to mark the 15th anniversary of Vietnam -Spain cooperation. This event was of special significance with the attendance of H.E. Mr. José Manual Garcia-Margallo, Spanish Minister of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation on the occasion of his official visit to Vietnam.
 

 

Climate Change: Putting Gender Equality at the Centre

Climate change caused by greenhouse gas emissions threatens everyone, but women and men will experience it differently. Discriminatory gender norms mean that women have fewer social and economic resources than men, which reduces their resiliency to natural disasters and other fallout from climate change. They are the primary managers of household resources, such as water and fuel, which may be in increasingly short supply. And many have livelihoods highly vulnerable to climatic variations, including in agriculture. 

 

The role of men and boys in achieving gender equality

'Gender equality is not a women’s issue; it concerns men and boys as well as women and girls. Garnering sufficient support for the profound social changes required by the gender equality agenda cannot be achieved by women alone. It also requires the active involvement of men, all the more so as they often control the resources needed for this work. 

 

Small steps and big goals: Two countries' experiences in achieving MDGs 4 & 5

Complex problems can sometimes be solved with simple solutions. For maternal and child health, significant progress has been achieved in Viet Nam by providing weekly supplements of iron and folic acid, and in the Philippines by encouraging breastfeeding. In the process, both countries have taken a step closer to achieving Millennium Development Goal (MDG) 4, which calls for a two thirds reduction in under-5 mortality between 1990 and 2015, and MDG 5, which calls for a three quarters reduction in the maternal mortality ratio.

"... 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 ..."
