As salam, hello readers...
Masa aku draft entry ni, aku masih berada di Golden Stadium Hotel di Phnom Penh. Tapi aku agak stuck dengan penggunaan ayat yang betul untuk menulis entry. Takut-takut salah guna ayat, boleh menimbulkan kesalafahaman kepada pembaca pula, kan?
Dalam mengenali hakikat seorang wanita, kita perlu tahu latar belakang seseorang itu dengan rantaian beberapa faktor. Budaya, sosial, ekonomi menjadikan kita lebih "dekat" dan mengenal dengan lebih jelas. Dalam posting ini mungkin aku hanya fokus pada wanita Asia sebelah Vietnam, berbanding di Kemboja.
Vietnam berjiran dengan Kemboja, kan?
Dan ini adalah beberapa FAKTA yang harus anda ketahui dan ia ditulis oleh blogger Ai Lung Nguyen.
#1- Vietnamese women outnumber the men. Vietnamese men often die before the age of 65. There is a lot of Vietnamese women out there who are in their 70s or older and lonely. (The ratio of men to women older than 65 is less than 2 men for every 3 women.)
#2- Prostitution is actually pretty low in Vietnam. Quite a few Vietnamese women are very traditional and would never stoop to such a degrading occupation. (Las Vegas on the other hand...)
#3- Vietnamese women are not "dragon ladies". Although some of the feminists might enjoy describing themselves that way... it does not in any way mean that Vietnamese women are "cold blooded reptiles". We're like any other women. We have feelings, if you prick us do we not get pissed off?
#4- Vietnam does have a feminist movement. Feminist groups in Vietnam started appearing during the 1960s and have been growing stronger ever since.
#5- The birth rate in Vietnam is low compared to the rest of the world. 17.07 births/1,000 population. 1.91 children born / woman. For comparison purposes the USA has 2.06 children born / woman.
#6- The literacy rate for women in Vietnam is 92%. The average for the country is 94%. (Mostly its the older generation which is illiterate.) Note: Literacy in the USA is 99.1%.
#7- Historically Vietnamese girls stay in school less than boys. Boys usually quit after 11 years of schooling whereas the average for Vietnamese girls is 10 years. The numbers are due to the fact that older generation of women often weren't schooled as much, but these numbers are improving rapidly as the younger generation realizes the importance of a good education. (In the USA the averages is 15 years for boys and 17 years for girls.)
#8- Vietnamese women have surprisingly lower breast cancer rates than women in North America. Why? We live and eat healthier. Less smoking, less carcinogens in our food. Our life expectancy is going up. In the USA life expectancy is going down due to skyrocketing obesity rates.
#9- Most women in Vietnam ride motorcycles, scooters or bicycles to work. Although this is equally true of the men. Motorcycles/etc are EXTREMELY popular in Vietnam.
#10- Vietnamese women rock! Okay technically its more pop music, but Vietnamese girl bands are an ever growing phenomenon. (Spice Girls eat your heart out) source: Feminist truth blog
