Women's Day

Episode 43 - Police Brutality; Women's Day

In Việt Nam, more and more activists are experiencing a daily terror of constant surveillance, verbal abuse and beatings from those supposedly defending the law: the security police force. Loa's Trinh Nguyễn takes a look inside the pervasive police brutality in Việt Nam.

March 8 is International Women’s Day, or Ngày Quốc Tế Phụ Nữ. It's a day to celebrate women’s contributions to society, but also a reminder that the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements happened despite a lack of parity. In this week’s Vietnamism, Loa’s Chí-Linh Đinh explores how it all started and how it is celebrated today.
