Summary: A searing account of Vietnamese women's wartime experiences probes the cultural legacies of the American war. The standard history of North Vietnam's war with the United States is informed, on both sides, almost exclusively by the accounts of men. The familiar portrait of the Vietnamese woman as passive onlooker--war bride, prostitute, or helpless refugee--dominates the scholarship, films, and novels on the subject; nowhere have we seen evidence of women's active r
oles in the war that has defined both 20th-century America and Vietnam. This book provides the first portrait of the "fighting women" of Vietnam who emerged from a long historical and mythical tradition of the "woman warrior." Through Vietnamese oral history, private writings, literature, and military accounts, Karen G. Turner explores the crucial role North Vietnamese women played as valiant soldiers, the personal sacrifice they suffered, and the enduring political and social influence their war roles have come to exert on their lives. A searing chronicle of wartime experiences, Even the Women Must Fight probes the cultural legacy of North Vietnam's American War. Unflinching in its portrayal of hardship, valor, and personal sacrifice, this wrenching account is nothing short of a revelation, banishing in one bold stroke the familiar image of Vietnamese women as passive onlookers, war brides, prostitutes, or helpless refugees.
