With the End of the Tuoi Tre Rape Allegation, Vietnam's #MeToo Sizzles Out. What Now?

26 Sep 2021  |  saigoneer.com
The article discusses the sexual assault allegations at Tuoi Tre, which sparked Vietnam's #MeToo movement, and the subsequent police decision not to proceed due to lack of evidence. It delves into the broader issues of sexual harassment and assault in Vietnam, including the lack of proper terminology and understanding, gender relations, and the role of familial kinship in silencing victims. The article also critiques the role of institutions and organizations in failing to protect victims and provide justice, highlighting the inadequacies of the criminal justice system and the lack of workplace policies to address harassment.

A Compartmentalized World: The Enduring Relevance of Vu Trong Phung's 'Dumb Luck'

26 Sep 2021  |  saigoneer.com
The article provides an in-depth analysis of Vu Trong Phung's novel 'Dumb Luck' (Số Đỏ), a seminal work in Vietnamese literature that was once banned but is now part of the country's high school curriculum. The novel satirizes the Europeanization of Vietnamese society through the story of Red-Haired Xuan, who rises from poverty to become a symbol of modernity. The author discusses themes of modernity versus tradition, the impact of colonialism, and the superficiality of societal changes. The article also touches on the relevance of Phung's critiques in the context of contemporary neo-imperialism and neoliberalism. It examines the novel's commentary on the commodification of women's liberation and the spectacle of modern life, drawing parallels with Guy Debord's theory of the society of the spectacle. The analysis suggests that while the novel mocks the Vietnamese bourgeoisie's obsession with Western standards, it also questions the binary of Western modernity versus Eastern tradition without idealizing the latter.
