Summary "During the Vietnam War ... a group of female American peace activists decided to take matters into their own hands and meet with Vietnamese women to discuss how to end U.S. intervention in Vietnam. ... [These] U.S. activists solicited Vietnamese women's opinions and advice on how to end the war and looked toward them as models for their own lives, viewing them as paragons of a new womanhood and a means by which to discuss their own subordination within their communities and U.S. society more broadly" Provided by publisher
