My Nguyen - Week 4

The book Radicals on the Road: Internationalism, Orientalism, and Feminism During the Vietnam Era by Judy Tzu-Chu Wu is the rough sketch that describes the feminist movement for world peace at the international level during the Cold War. It directly relates to the anti-war movement in South East Asia of women from many countries. This movement not only fights against the war in Vietnam, but also against the war between the communists and the capitalists, between Russia and the United States in the arm race. They successfully create the basic foundation for the global sisterhood and many other movements during this period. Recently, on January 21, 2017, there are the Women’s Marches in many cities across America and the world, especially in Washington D.C. This event comes just one day after the Presidential Inauguration of Donald Trump with the purpose of sending him and his administration a bold message that women’s rights are human rights. As many predict, these marches will eventually transform into the social movements of equal rights between men and women. In addition, it will give women the stronger voice and power in many aspects of the society.
Question: These marches are very inspiring. However, what should women do to really change it into a long-lasting movement?
