On his account on the social network X, formerly Twitter, the president described Cuban women as victors of the impossible, and affirmed that the creation of the Cuban Women’s Federation (FMC) is revolution within the Revolution.
The first tribute to Vilma Espín, the eternal president and other founders. Faced with new challenges, their examples inspire, he stated.
The Cuban Women’s Federarion, which brings together more than four million Cuban women, is celebrating its 63rd anniversary of tangible progress in terms of emancipation, equality, and contributions to the country in all spheres.
The main event to commemorate the anniversary will take place in the eastern Cuban province of Las Tunas, where tribute will be paid to its main architects: the historic leader of the Revolution, Fidel Castro, and the heroine Vilma Espín, who was its founder and secretary.
Created on August 26, 1960, the women’s organization has contributed to incorporating women into the process of social and economic change launched in Cuba after the revolutionary triumph on January 1, 1959, and promotes policies to achieve the full exercise of women’s equality in all spheres of society.
