On the social network X (formerly Twitter), the Cuban ambassador, Víctor Cairo, published an audiovisual presentation on the history of the group and congratulated its members, especially those who work in the state mission and the Panamanian women who have given so much support to the FMC, according to the text.
Meanwhile, the Network of Cuban Residents in Latin America and the Caribbean and the Martí Association of Cuban Residents in Panama issued a statement praising the tireless work of women in defense of rights and gender equality on the island.
You have been the ones who have promoted important transformations, such as the massive incorporation of women to education and work, the guarantee of sexual and reproductive rights, the eradication of discrimination and gender violence, among other remarkable achievements,’ the text said.
These groups also underlined the example of solidarity and commitment of Cuban women, who contribute to the development of other nations through international collaboration, especially in the fields of health and education.
Founded on August 23, 1960, at the dawn of the Cuban Revolution, the FMC made it possible for the Cuban women to have their own space where they could discuss their concerns and take part in the social, economic and political transformations of the time.
