The Liberation Women Union of Region 5 was founded in March 1961. During the resistance war against the U.S., under the leadership of the Party Committee of Region 5, the union united women in the provinces of Region 5 on a national liberation and reunification front. They organized the building of Liberation Women's Union organizations in all three areas: revolutionary bases, plains, and enemy regions. The union performed well in the tasks of political struggle, military transport, participating in the armed struggle, and production to serve the frontline.
