Congratulatory message from UN Women

21 February 2017

Dear Mdm. Nguyen Thi Thu Ha,

On behalf of the UN Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women (UN Women), I would like to extend my sincere congratulations to Viet Nam Women’s Union on the occasion of its 12th National Women's Congress.

I commend the Viet Nam Women’s Union (VWU) for its decades of strong leadership in promoting the interests of women in Vietnamese society, and working to influence policies on gender equality and the empowerment of women while also serving women at the community level.

UN Women is committed to continuing its partnership with VWU and supporting your endeavors to making a difference in the lives of women and girls and achieve the Sustainable Development Goals for gender equality by 2030. In the coming years, we hope that we can cooperate with VWU to help the organization grow even stronger by build further alliances with advocates for gender equality and women’s empowerment from across sectors, including associations and organizations outside of the government, for VWU to lead in pursuing social justice and equality for the most marginalized and voiceless women in the country. We also look forward to seeing VWU become a centre of progressive thinking and excellence in research on gender equality issues for sound policy advice to the party and the government.

UN Women looks forward to our continuing collaboration towards greater recognition of women’s contribution to society and creating an enabling environment for all women in Viet Nam to be able to develop their full potential.

Your sincerely,

Shoko Ishikawa Country Representative

"... 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)
