March 7-8 the Federation of Cuban Women (FMC) will hold its 9th Congress in Havana, with some 400 delegates and international guests in attendance.
Since August of 1960, the FMC has been working to guarantee the full participation of women in all sectors of society. From its foundation through 2007, the organization was led by Vilma Espín, a veteran of both the revolutionary underground and the guerrilla struggle. More than four million Cuban women currently belong to the FMC, which is doing important work with young women who account for 30% of the membership.
Teresa Amarelle Boué, FMC secretary general, spoke with Granma International about the upcoming Congress.
