Madame Nhu Warns Vietnamese Women About Foreigners

Apr. 10, 1963 - Saigon’s first lady, Madame Ngo Dinh Nhu, has warned South Vietnamese women against being corrupted by foreigners and has especially warned them not to believe foreigners’ promises of marriage. In a communiqué to the officers of the Women’s Solidarity Movement which she founded, she said “some foreigners” seemed to believe native women were partial payment for their country’s aid to South Vietnam. Madame Nhu did not mention Americans by name, but her meaning was obvious. More than 9,000 American troops are helping South Vietnam fight communist guerrillas, and the U.S. is the only country which has given the country extensive aid. Madame Nhu is the sister-in-law of President Ngo Dinh Diem and his official hostess. She is also a member of the National Assembly, where she forced through a bill banning all dancing — even by Americans — as immoral. In her communiqué, Madame Nhu told her women followers that acceptance of foreign aid should not give them an inferiority complex.
