Intersections: War Through Women’s Eyes: Nam Phuong’s Red on Gold and Yung Krall’s A Thousand Tears Falling (7104 words)
With these words, Nam Phuong undertakes to reconstruct and retell her life story – and the succession of events that led to her first failed attempt to escape from the newly created Socialist Republic of Vietnam as a ‘boat-person’ in 1977, an attempt that resulted in imprisonment and interrogation by the Vietnamese authorities.
One of Nam Phuong’s earliest memories was of the sudden night-time arrest of her father by the French security police in 1945 and her resulting fear and panic.
For Nam Phuong, ‘the historic exodus of almost a million north Vietnamese to the south proved what communism was like,’[32] and she presents the years following partition as ‘chaotic,’ including the widespread violence between the various national religious sects and government forces.
UNICEF - Panorama: Viet Nam - Proteger a las mujeres jóvenes de Viet Nam de los tratantes de personas (637 words)
En 1991, Phuong fue atraída mediante engaños a la frontera entre ambas naciones por un grupo de tratantes de personas, y trasladada contra su voluntad a China, donde fue arrastrada hasta una vivienda en una pequeña aldea y vendida como esposa de un hombre entrado en años.
Phuong es una de las decenas de miles de mujeres vietnamitas enviadas por los tratantes de personas a las vecinas China y Camboya, y aún a puntos más distantes, como Taiwán, Tailandia y Corea del Sur.
Phuong participa activamente en la Unión de Mujeres de Cao Loc, donde suele contar sus experiencias, para que su historia sirva de advertencia a los demás.
