Nguyen, H. (2013). The Vietnamese concept of a feminine ideal and the images of Australian women in Olga Masters’ stories. Gender Forum: an internet platform for gender and women's studies, 45 1-10.

Abstract

In this paper I compare Olga Masters’ portrayals of women with the ideals which are currently expected to be followed by Vietnamese women. The paper will investigate to what extend Olga Masters’ work corresponds to the Vietnamese traditional expectation of feminine ideals which are based on four essential attributes: industriousness, appropriate self-presentation, good communication skills, and virtue.
