  • "Nowadays you will find the women of Vietnam in the fields, in the market-places and hawking all sorts of wares in the streets. You will find them laying roads around the US Army HQ in Long Binh, behind a sign that says, 'Men and Equipment at Work'. Long queues of women wait inside and outside the gates of the big bases: they are the hootch-maids who wait upon the GIs."
    - 'Saigon', Germaine Greer in Sunday Times, 1971.
