Learn a lot on how Vietnamese women involved in building up Vietnam nation as an individual, as a wife and a mother in the family, as a member in guerrilla forces and as a leader to lead a lot of patriotic movements. Impressive when see the media describes how a lot of Vietnamese street sellers face on their day to day activities to earn their living and survive in a big city like Hanoi.
