Brief substance This paper locates changes in care practices and gender roles within the broader context of marketisation. The context is a northern Vietnamese village that has experienced an immense expansion in its wholesale clothing market since the beginning of the 2000s. The paper discusses how the current situation encourages women and men to assume new tasks at home and in the trade business, and how this process of changing gender roles across generations is driven by and again reinforces shifting notions of femininity and masculinity. Furthermore, the paper inquires how gendered expectations of care play into national level struggles over development and reinforce social hierarchies. The findings are based on twelve months of anthropological fieldwork, including in-depth and life-story interviews, informal conversations and participant observation
