Cuban women represent 53.22 percent in the National Assembly, Mari said about one of the points discussed at the meeting that had been in session in Vienna since Tuesday.

Meanwhile, the president of the Parliament’s International Relations Commission, Yolanda Ferrer, pointed out that the 2019 Constitution is an indispensable benchmark to measure the political will to achieve gender equality.

Such positions, she added, are also expressed in public policies and legal standards that reinforce the Cuban women’s rights.

Ferrer explained that women still have challenges, but when ‘we compare ourselves with the world in situation and condition, we can gauge the great work of the Revolution.’
