Flying Ducks? Girls' Schooling in Rural Vietnam
Author: Liu, Amy Y. C.1
Source: Asian Economic Journal, Volume 15, Number 4, December 2001, pp. 385-403(19)
Publisher: Wiley-Blackwell
Summary: Due to Confucian values, girls are colloquially referred to as `flying ducks' as they are regarded as a loss to the family upon marriage. Cultural values could shape the parents' perception of the rate of the children's income transfer to the parents. If the cultural norms dictate that sons provide old-age security to the parents, while daughters marry and provide no support to the parents, parents may not be willing to invest as much in girls' education relative to boys. Promotion of gender equality and reduction of the reliance on sons in providing old-age security to parents are necessary to ensure that girls have equal opportunities to receive education.
