BA TRIEU'S 21st CENTURY DAUGHTERS
Stories of Remarkable Vietnamese Women
This is how it all started - with Irene observing the Remarkable Women of Vietnam and being inspired to tell their stories to the world!
Ba Trieu's 21st Century Daughters. Stories of Remarkable Vietnamese Women celebrates the diversity and achievements of 20 Women Leaders in Vietnam.
Their remarkable stories inspire us to imagine what is possible!
If this is what women [in Vietnam] can do without any specific support mechanism and despite ongoing gender inequality, imagine what could be possible with serious encouragement and equal opportunities?
This book is about the inspirational women of Vietnam, and is available, both, in English, and in Vietnamese.
It is a tribute, a monument to Vietnamese women. It is a monument constructed on the stories of twenty remarkable women, spanning three generations. These women – some famous, some less well known – share valuable lessons in life and leadership from Vietnam, one of the fastest changing societies on the planet.
The book is also the product of an unusual collaboration, between an outsider, Irene Ohler, looking in on Vietnam, and an insider, Do Thuy Duong, who represents the current generation of Vietnamese women leaders.
"YOUR BOOK HAS TOUCHED MY LIFE AND INSPIRED ME TO LIVE MY DREAM AND UNLEASH MYSELF."
"Happy 5th Birthday of Ba Trieu's 21st Century Daughters!
On this special day, I’d like you to know how your book has touched my life and inspired me to live my dream and unleash myself. It was around 5 years ago that I saw Ba Trieu's 21st Century Daughters on the shelf in a bookstore in my neighborhood. It was an immediate spark when I read the title and the cover. After the first few pages, I knew that this book is for me, and later, I’ve had it as the Vietnam Women’s Day gift to all female employees in my organization given the inspirations and sparks it brings.
THANK YOU and your co-writer for giving birth to this wonderful book. I believe, since then, it has inspired thousands of females to seize their dreams and live their life to the fullest… Happy 5th birthday to your lovely “baby” !"
