Abstract

The report is organized into three main sections: The first section reviews some of the trends over time in closing gender gaps, focusing on key indicators such as access to health care and education and participation. Thanks to an appropriate policy and institutional framework, the trends are mostly good and are expected to continue, albeit at a slower pace. The second section looks at the context of development and change in Vietnam. This section identifies some areas in which the playing field is not level, causing women's opportunities to be more limited, and focuses on the changing economy and how women and men avail themselves of new opportunities. The third and final section is concerned with the social change that accompanies economic development. The report describes the gender aspects of some of the new and emerging issues resulting from rapid economic and social change, and suggests new ways to approach these issues.
