Even the Women Must Fight probes the cultural legacy of North Vietnam's American War. Based on interviews conducted in the 1990s with veterans, Vietnamese civilians, and journalists, this volume chronicles the contributions of Vietnamese women to the independence struggle of their nation. 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.
