Cuba’s Family Code is the result of struggles and conquests

Havana, Sep 25 (Prensa Latina) The new Family Code is the result of many struggles and conquests, the secretary general of the Cuban Women's Federation (FMC), Teresa Amarelle, said on Sunday.

After exercising her right to vote at Polling Station 1 in Playa municipality, in Havana, the women’s leader said that the law is a tribute to the eternal FMC president, Vilma Espin, who worked on updating the document.

She added that the legislative document takes into account the challenges of the organization and Cuban women, such as gender and family violence, and care for their families, among other issues related to inclusion and affection.

“There are many aspirations by Cuban women materialized in a Code where love becomes law,” said Amarelle, who is also a member of the Council of State.

for her part, Milagros Mayolas is 83 years old and was one of the first people to exercise her right to vote at the polling station.

“I do it because with this Code we will have a better country,” she said.

Meanwhile, the president of the Electoral Council of the district, Yanet Cerulia, noted that conditions are in place to cast the vote today.

She pointed out that the members of the voting board will take the ballots to the homes of those who cannot go to the polling station due to health reasons.
