MPs debate on the advancement of women in Cuba

Havana, Jul 4 (Prensa Latina) Cuban parliamentarians on Tuesday debated on the status of the National Program for the Advancement of Women in the First Parliamentary Workshop for Gender Equality held here, with the participation of UN authorities.

Arelys Santana, president of the Commission for Youth, Children and Women’s Equal Rights of the National Assembly of People’s Power of Cuba, highlighted that the meeting was in line with the governmental goals aimed at advancing towards the achievement of a culture of equality. The head noted, “the improvement of the People’s Power conceives the need for a harmonious functioning of the bodies’ system that comprise it and the role of women is increasingly significant.”

The resident Coordinator of the United Nations System on Cuba Francisco Pichon commented that gender equality is a cause for every day, “a cross-cutting issue in which we accompany the country in a systematic and multidimensional way.”

“It is our priority to support the economic empowerment of women, their access to employment, decision-making, leadership roles in cooperatives, entrepreneurship and other initiatives promoted by the agencies and programs of the system,” he added.

Pichon was grateful to the Federation of Cuban Women for the permanent contact with the agencies, funds and programs of the United Nations on the country, standing out that they have been able to move forward together on several gender priorities thanks to the transparency, trust and fraternal spirit of the women’s organization.
