Let’s just say that the Vietnamese Women’s Museum blew my mind. What I didn’t realize going into it was how drastically different many of the minority cultures in Vietnam are. To have both patriarchal and matriarchal societies so close to one another was fascinating. Their marriage and birthing customs are completely different to the way in which I’ve grown up, with many women still not getting ultrasounds of their babies to this day. You will leave with huge respect for Vietnamese women who somehow, against all the odds, manage to do it all. Their men are extremely lucky.
