Vietnam ranked among the world’s top highest female labour-force participation rates ranking. Statistics from ILO shows that, as of 2018, Vietnam ranked 12th in world and 2nd in South East Asia as their proportion of women aged 15 to 64 in the labour force reached over 79%. Along with high female labor-force participation share, the proportion of women in senior managing positions in enterprises operating in Vietnam was also ranked 2nd in Asia at 36% as stated by Grant Thornton in its 2019 Women in business report. These figures reflect the crucial role of Vietnamese women in the society and the shifting of balance of power between them and their male counterparts.
