Cultivating Gender: Meanings of Place and Work in Rural Vietnam
Responsible organisation
2015 (English)Book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

“The husband ploughs, the wife transplants, the buffalo harrows.” In rural Vietnam, this ancient saying has survived communist revolution, land reforms and the recent rise of market-oriented household farming. And yet, even if this trinity still pictures the ideal essence of farming life, the reality is that urbanization, labour migration and economic change in the Vietnamese countryside are leading to a feminization of farming. This transformation has profound implications not just for the agricultural sector and the individual women themselves but also for fundamental social structures and relations. By exploring in detail the lived reality of rural life in a northern wet-rice village, the author offers important insights into place, workand (not least) what constitutes femininity and masculinity in Vietnam today.
