Vietnamese Women's Day Date in the current year: October 20, 2016

Vietnamese Women's Day Women of Vietnam have two holidays to celebrate – Mother's Day, coinciding with International Women's Day and Vietnamese Women's Day. The latter, that falls on October 20 every year, has a significant importance for the Vietnamese women.

On October 20, 1930 the women of Vietnam united against imperialism and created a special organization, that later became known as the Vietnam Women's Union. This movement was supported by the Communist Party of Vietnam and it designated October 20 to be anniversary of this organization and honor the Vietnamese women.

Vietnamese Women's Day is a perfect occasion for men of Vietnam to express their love for women. This holiday also reminds men about the importance of women for the society and nation. Political campaigns annually raise public awareness of different problems, that modern Vietnamese women face every day, like sexual harassment, violence, discrimination and gender inequality.

The government of Vietnam has a lot of things to do to overcome these issues. Celebration of Vietnamese Women's Day is another reminder for the government about its ultimate goal.
