With a call to improve the functioning of the Federation of Cuban Women (FMC), the XI Municipal Assembly Congress was held in Holguin, presided over by Teresa Amarelle Boué, General Secretary of this organization in Holguin.

During the exchange local women show the results and challenges of the FMC members in the last five years. A complex context where women proved to be winners of the impossible.

The debate focused on topics such as the contribution of women to the socioeconomic life of the province, teenage pregnancy, care for the elderly, food production and care for young people.

In this sense, Amarelle Boué stressed the need to work in the communities, where these vulnerabilities occur and which require a higher interest on the part of the federates.

“Our main setting is the community, where there is a lack of milk, where we have unattached women and young people who have not been able to continue their studies. Nothing is alien to the Federation and our role is to be there, where the women and their families are”.
