Cuban president praises women’s contribution to development

Cuban president praises women’s contribution to development

Havana, (Prensa Latina) President Miguel Diaz-Canel on Friday highlighted that women in Cuba are the strength of the Revolution and 'its strongest pillar'.

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.
