Nguyen Thien Nhan, President of the Vietnam Fatherland Front, said: "The northern Vietnamese, especially the women, played a very important role in our resistance war against the US aggressors. They took care of their parents and in-laws, did the farm work while still being ready to fight against the invaders, and encouraged their husbands to go to the front. The exhibition gives us a deeper understanding of their lives and made us prouder of all Vietnamese women."
