On his Twitter account, the head of State noted that he had reaffirmed that conviction at meeting on Thursday with women leaders at the headquarters of the Federation of Cuban Women (FMC).
‘We talked about what has been achieved, but more about how much is still missing for full equality. We left the place feeling more reassured,’ he said.
The words emancipation, participation and challenges of gender equality transcended at the meeting, which Diaz-Canel described as very emotional.
The president described the new Family Code as more inclusive, advanced, modern, where diversity in Cuba is recognized.
Diaz-Canel noted the need to rescue social programs, as well as to return to work with families who have education gaps and have a lower socioeconomic level.
