Havana, Feb 14 (Prensa Latina) The role of Cuban women in society from the viewpoint of the historical leader of the revolution, Fidel Castro, was one of the topics of the last day of the 12th University Congress 2020 in this capital city.
In the lecture ‘Marti, Che and Fidel,’ the former rector of the University of Havana Juan Vela said that the leader of the Cuban Revolution had the Cuban woman in mind, whom he considered a pillar in each of the social, cultural and educational ‘revolutions’ that took place in Cuba.
He recalled Fidel’s words when he said: ‘let us work, organize and activate the creative spirit and enthusiasm of Cuban women in this revolutionary stage.’
Vela highlighted the need to end all forms of discrimination and violence against all women and girls worldwide, referring to one of the sustainable development goals of Agenda 2030. The event entitled ‘The University and the Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development’ held five days of intense debates and exchanges of experiences in the capital’s Convention Center, attended by nearly 2,000 delegates from 45 nations.
