The Secretary of the Federation of Cuban Women (FMC) Teresa Amarelle assured so on a virtual appearance at the high-level segment of the UN General Assembly Beijing +25, which is in session a quarter of a century after the 4th World Conference on UN Women.
The FMC’s head said that Washington’s hostile policy is the most damaging form of violence against Cuban girls and women, as the US blockade against Cuba is tightened ‘fiercely in Covid-19 times.’
Despite so, she ensured, Cuban women show progress in their empowerment, because of the political will of the State and Government, expressed through the application of laws, policies and programs.
‘Our society, without being perfect, is a sample of inclusion. The new Constitution of the Republic of Cuba reaffirms its commitment to the principle of equality and non-discrimination,’ she added.
