Worker in rice field, near Da Nang, Quang Nam-Da Nang Province
Rice farming is hard work. Seedlings have to be transplanted one by one to the flooded paddies. Women traditionally take on
this backbreaking work, while men see to the repair of the dikes and the thrashing of the harvested rice sheaves. Rice farming
will always require large numbers of people, knee deep in mucky water, backs bent under the tropical sun, and joined in a
community task too big for any one family.
