HCMC – The Women’s Empowerment Club (WEC) has established a strong network of Vietnamese women and aimed to empower them, which is known as the club’s biggest success over the past few years.
Speaking at a press conference in HCMC on March 7 to celebrate the International Women’s Day and the five-year anniversary of the club, funded by the United States Consulate General in HCMC, Marie Damour, U.S. Consul General, said that the club has built a network of over 250 members and 55 trainers and community partners.
Each member of the club has helped spread the influence of women in the community, stimulating other women to position their role and actively create their values for the society, a member of the club said on the sidelines of the event.
“The WEC is an important and incredibly successful initiative to advance gender equity and equality, and the social, economic, and political empowerment of women and girls in Southern Vietnam,” said the U.S. Consul General.
During its five-year journey, the club has ceaselessly pursued these goals and produced many positive changes in thinking about the strength of women.
Damour expects the Government, local authorities, non-government organizations and individuals to partner together to find solutions to challenges facing equality for women and men in Vietnam.
