The analysis takes place on the eve of tomorrow’s fifth extraordinary session of the Cuban Parliament in its 9th Legislature.
The issue was at the center of the debate of the Commission of Attention to Youth, Children and Women’s Equal Rights, one of the eight permanent commissions of the ANPP working today at the Convention Center of this capital, with the participation of President Miguel Díaz-Canel.
Deputy Arelys Santana, chairwoman of the commission, unveiled the opinion of the checks made on the implementation of the Program for the Advancement of Women, which was decided by presidential decree in 2021.
Among other legislators who participated in the debates were the president of the Federation of Cuban Women, Teresa Amarelle; Deputy Prime Minister Inés María Chapman; Minister of Education, Ena Elsa Velázquez; and the first secretary of the Union of Young Communist Women, Aylín Álvarez.
Commissions of legislators visited labor centers with a high concentration of women in most of the country’s provinces, in addition to contacting institutions and women who need to benefit from the government’s policies in this regard.
