Tribute to Vilma Espín and the Federation of Cuban Women in Ethiopia

Addis Ababa, Aug 23 (Prensa Latina) The Cuban state mission in Ethiopia today paid tribute to the role of Cuban women in the revolutionary process and the legacy of Vilma Espín Guillois, on the occasion of the 63rd anniversary of the FMC.

Ambassador Jorge Lefebre recalled that, with the apperance of the Federation of Cuban Women (FMC), this sector of the population has had its space in the economic, political and social activities promoted by the Revolution from its early years.

He explained that the organization created opportunities for the advancement of girls and women in Cuba, especially those who before January 1959 did not have the resources for education or employment.

With the FMC, headed by Vilma Espín Guillois, it is impossible today to talk about the Cuban Revolution without mentioning the accompaniment of women in construction, industry, science, defense, culture, sports, among other sectors, he emphasized.

“Every 23rd of August is a reason to pay tribute to Cuban women, to Vilma, to Celia Sanchez Manduley, wherever we are,” the diplomat concluded.

The Federation was founded on August 23, 1960, at the beginning of the Cuban Revolution, and made it possible for the Cuban women to have their own place where they could discuss their concerns and be part of the social, economic and political transformations of the time.
