Whether they appear weapon in hand and victorious in the three wars against the French, Americans and Chinese, or working in agriculture, rearing animals or industry, these posters depict the essential role of women in Vietnamese society in the second half of the 20th century.

The installation contains original hand-painted sketches and screen-printed and stencilled posters, all from the collection of the Vietnamese Women's Museum in Hanoi.
