Cuba Among the Countries with Best Women's Rights Indicators

Havana, February 20 (RHC) -– The high level of participation by women in Cuban society and the rights guaranteed by the Revolution to Cuban women place the island in a very favorable stand in the world, as it has been acknowledged by the United Nations, said a Cuba lawmaker.

Speaking at the National Parliament, lawmaker Arelys Santana recalled that over 66 percent of the local professional labor force is made up by women, with more than 60 percent in public health.

Most judges, attorneys and lawyers are women, which is not common in any other country, said the lawmaker who is also member of the Secretariat of the Cuban Women’s Federation.

Women represent 58 percent of all scientists in the country and 48 percent of the Parliament deputies, she stressed. All these and other achievements are the fruit of constant care and action by the Cuban Revolution and its policies in favor of women.
