Vietnamese Women Always Remembering Uncle Ho

(On the occasion of the 124th birth anniversary of President Ho Chi Minh 19/05/1890 – 19/05/2014)
Ho Chi Minh is a revolutionary genius and a great ideologist of the era. In his whole life, he untiringly struggled for the cause of national liberation, class liberation and human liberation, including the emancipation of women and for their equality. In his lifetime, he paid special attention to and extended his great love for women and women’s movements in the country. Today when he has passed, his ideology and teachings retain their value.
In response to Directive 03 – CT/TW dated 14/5/2011 of the Party Political Bureau on continued implementation of the Movement of learning and following Ho Chi Minh’s ethical examples launched in 2011, in the last many years, with its functions and tasks, the Vietnamese Women’s Museum has organized the Exhibition “Uncle Ho with the Cause of Women’s Emancipation”. This travel exhibition has been taken to many provinces and cities across the country. Photos displayed in the exhibition show the love of women toward their beloved Uncle Ho and his warm sentiments reserved for women. In particular, the moving stories about his warm sentiments and his care for women contribute to promoting learning and following his teachings and his lifestyle and help people further consolidate their confidence in the leadership of the Party and Uncle Ho, and bring into full play the tradition of great national unity in the cause of national defense and construction.
