Try David Chanoff and Doan Van Toai, Vietnam--A Portrait of a People at War.
It is a collection of personal recollections of the war, many from women.
You might also look at Michael Lanning's Inside the VC and NVA which, I
recall, has some reference to women. Look for works by Le Ly Hayslip. An
excerpt of her memoirs can be found in Walter Capps, the Vietnam Reader.

Hope this helps,

I don't know where you'd find it, but "Women of Viet Nam" was authored by
Arlene Eisen-Bergman & published by Peoples Press (San Francisco 1975). Out
of print as far as I know. I believe the author to be teaching someplace in
the SF Bay Area. I remember it to be quite good.
