DOMESTIC GENDER INEQUALITY IN MEKONG DELTA

NGUYEN THI NGAN HOA

Tóm tắt


     Based on findings of previous research works done by many researchers as well as several surveys conducted by the General Statistics Office on residential communities in Mekong Delta, the author analyzes issues relating to gender inequality in family and impacts caused by the gender inequality on women's life. According to the research findings, domestic gender inequality is obviously reflected in three fields, including: access to educational opportunities at higher levels (such as high school or university) among girls; early marriage and transnational marriage; and, acceptance of being beaten by husband. The analyses show that poverty is a common reason for school dropouts among girls and for transnational marriage among women; in the meanwhile, low education, in addition to gender and cultural factors, makes the above-mentioned problems more serious, causing a lot of negative impacts on life of not only women, but also their children. Based on the analyses, the author makes some recommendations that aim at minimizing and gradually eliminating the gender inequality.
