My name is Nguyen Thi Thuy Dao, from Vietnam. I am a Ph.D. student in Assumption University in Thailand, and a scholar of the United Board for Christian Higher Education in Asia. I have become a member of the Scranton Women’s Leadership Center since August, 2016 and since then I have chances to pay attention to the gender issues, women’s rights and other stories related to girls and women who have suffered from unfair behaviors from some social preconceptions and their positively strong reactions which lead to independence, freedom and happiness.


This is a picture of my daughter who is almost 8 years old. As other girls, she deserves to be loved and to receive good care from parents, grandparents, relatives, teachers and friends. If all girls had enough care and gently right behaviors from adults, they would have their childhood full of good memories which become premise for the substantial growth and physical and mental development. But in reality, it is sad to say that, in my home country, there has been more and more news about the violence, child abuse, and even sexual abuse on girls in some regions in the countryside. They are guilty acts which need to be fiercely condemned, strongly punished and adequately penalized. It is hoped that once girls are cared and looked after well, they will become good servants for the society and will make their great contribution to country strength and peacefulness of the country. So, let us keep their smiles be always in their life.
