Cuba defends respectful coexistence without relations of domination

Cuba defends respectful coexistence without relations of domination

Havana, Dec 28 (Prensa Latina) The director of the National Center for Sexual Education of Cuba (CENESEX), Mariela Castro, on Tuesday defended the construction of a society where respectful coexistence prevails and there is no room for relations of domination.

“The CENESEX educates for love and respectful coexistence, not for relationships of domination often exercised through violence,” Castro stressed when speaking at the event on the 33rd anniversary of the founding of that institution.

We promote an education based on humanistic and democratic principles that inspire the paradigm of emancipation from socialism, said Castro at the Complaint Memorial located in this capital.

It (CENESEX) is one of the daring institutions of the Revolution and it could not be otherwise, said Castro, who received the Carlos J. Finlay Order.

Comprehensive sex education, she explained, provides valuable tools for understanding the human being as a subject o rights.

The revolutionary process contributed to weakening the mechanisms of domination and discrimination that exist in social relations, but that also resist pressures for change, she noted.

We must help to become aware that patriarchy does not disappear de facto, or symbolically as a result of theory, nor of the efforts of the transformative practice of socialism, nor of convincing discourses and policies, she explained.

It is necessary, she pointed out, to dismantle the system of patriarchal domination through political dialogue, permanent education and communication strategies.

In this way, it will be possible to give way to a new project of society based on solidarity, equality, justice and social equity, she said.

Minister of Public Health Jose Angel Portal highlighted the importance of CENESEX for Cuban society and recalled the historic role of combatants Vilma Espin and Celia Sanchez in their fight for people’s well-being and happiness.
