On March 8th, numerous congratulations have been conveyed to Cuban women.

The Permanent Commission of Attention to Youth, Childhood, and Equal Rights of Women of the National Assembly of People's Power joined the celebration and acknowledgment.

Never before has this celebration been held under such adverse conditions, after the impact in Cuba of the pandemic that has surpassed historical records of other health events humanity faced during the last year.

In the midst of these complex circumstances, Cuban women, once again, as  Fidel said, have turned the daily effort into a feat, said the National Assembly Committee.

The Minister of Public Health, Dr. José Angel Portal Miranda, for his part, expressed in a letter his pride in the way Cuban women assume and fulfill their responsibilities wherever the Homeland and life demand them.
