Women's Development through Revolutionary Mobilization

The author focuses on the women's movement in Cuba, with special
emphasis on the FMC roles. It is defended that "up to this point, the
women's movement under the revolution represents a mixed record of
achievements and shortcomings, characterizing a highly commendable but
not quite fully satisfactory attempt by the regime to solve the "woman
problem" in Cuban society"-p 361
The following topics are developed: working conditions before the
Revolution; Contradictory labor policies for women; Women's political
participation; the FMC; and the Family Code

1986 Momentos en la Vida de Esther.
In Mujeres. FMC. La Habana. December. P 54-55

Article on Esther Grave de Peralta, a delegate of the
Circunscription of San Agustin (no 56). She is 72 years old and was
inthe FAR (the army). She was Secretary of the "Comissiones
Permanentes de Trabajo" of the Municpal Assembly, and member of the
"Comission Permanente de Salud" and "Servicios Comunales. Before the
Revolution Esther worked in the garment industry. A testimony on this

"Cuando oven era obrera de un taller de confecciones. Era casada
y con 2 hijos, me rebele contra el maltrato que soportaban las

operarias del gremio, y decidi trabajar por cuenta propia.
Estableci un pequeno taller en la casa, donde laboraban cinco
mujeres" P 54

Calderon, Mirta Rodriguez
1986 Digame Usted (VI) Ellas y Ellos dicen que...
Gramma. June 26

The journalist Calderon emphasizes in her daily columm in the
Cuban newspaper Gramma, women's issue. She calls her columm a
collective tribune", and she focuses chiefly on testimonies of readers,
and on interviewers with women on working conditions and on men-women
Specifically this number is based on testimonies related to
reactions of readers to Calderon's previous articles on women's
problems (article on 'por que llora Maria?')
From one woman reader:

"El machismo no se combat por decreto, es una labor cotidiana y
constant en la que las mujeres desempenamos un papel fundamental."

1986 Digame Usted (II) Por que rie Eda Iris Castillo

Calderon talks on Iris Castillo Ramirez, a 56 years old worker
from the factory of sweets El Caney, in Santiago de Cuba. Iris has 8
medals --"heronia del trabajo" is the most important-- Iris declares
she is happy with the domestic work she has to do after her gainful
work. On his husband, she declares:
"hace cosas que es la mujer quien las debe hacer...Es un
hombre complete"
She is a union leader.
After the presentation of the interview, Mirta Calderon
question the readers on issues related to the interview. For instance,
she questions: "there are indeed activities in the house that just
women should be doing?"

I recommend a careful reading of Mirta Calderon columm. She
told me that readers react and men and women write continuously to her
on her articles. The mass-media is an important way to stimulate
changes on sexist values and practices in Cuban society.

1986 Digame Usted... (I) Por que llora Maria
Gramma May 12

This article provocated a broad polemic among Gramma's readers,
and the author received many letters on it. It is about the problems
of Maria Ramirez: her separation when her oldest child was 4 years
old--the husband was a womanizer, he was always drunken. She had to
support the children. Calderon asks the readers on discrimination
against female heads of household, and on the disrepct to the family
code-e.g., the fact that fathers do not assume economic responsibility
with their children, and the State does not punish them.

1986 Digame Usted (III) Por que se angustia Maria Teresa?
Gramma. May 25

Maria Teresa is a quimical engineer in her 40s. She talks
about discrimination against women in the working place. She is a
female head of household, and she had to support her children with any
help from the ex husband.

1986 Digame Usted (IV) Por que, a ver, por que...?
Gramma. June 11

The article is on textile industry workers of a 'taller ('23 de
Agosto') were 135 women and 17 men work. Men were connonly in manager
and supervisory _positions, despite the fact that women have more
experience than men in the factory. When the manager stepped down and
was replaced, there were 11 women workers who presented their name to
the position, but a man got it. This fact is criticized by Calderon.

1986 Digame Usted (V) Debate en el Batey
Gramma. June 18

Mirta Calderon focuses on jobs for women, based on collective
interviews with 25 members of the FMC. The case of female heads of
household is highlighted; the problems with maternity leave, and with
preferences to certain workers ('favoritismos') are discussed.

1986 Digame Usted (VII) Que Padre el padre de los Hijos de Maria
Gramma. November 17

The father of the three children of Maria (Gramma May 12) is

1986 Digame Usted (VIII) Se puede o no se puede?
Gramma. November 19

The article is on children without fathers, who are
supported by the mother; on the legal aspects and how different
organizations, e.g., the F.M.C., deals with the subject.

1986 Digame Usted (IX) Un mundo nuevo con ideas nuevas
Gramma. December 12

On women's promotion in the Moa county. The article discuss the
participation of women enginners in coper and niquel factories. More
thn 30 per cent of the labor force in the mining industry is female in
the county. Women managers in the production sphere and with
leadership positions in the political sector are interviewed.

The authors point out that the traditional structure of the
family was shattered by the Revolution and that Cuban women are called
upon "to excell at work, to volunteer, to study, to participate in
sports and politics, and to raise families--to be super women".

There are references and data on the precarious situation of
Cuban women workers before 1959, and to the programs and laws that
benefitted women after the Revolution.

It is noticed that female employment changed very little during
the first revolutionary years. It grew from 14.1 % in 1958 to 15.6 %
in 1968. The economic crisis of the 1960 and the flight of maids'
employers to Miami are some os the causes. The great increase of
female employment was between 1,68-1969 de to the nationalization of
small enterprises. In 1969 about 100 000 women joined the labor
market. Divorce rates increased from 8.5% to 30.2 % in 1974. And by te
late 1980, "the new couple had only 1.8 children (p. 84).

It is claimed that the sexual division of labor persisted because
S women were absent from the construction industry checked because other sources--Mujeres and FMC-- point out women's
participation in this sector>

According to the authors: "Castro wanted women to work but he
wanted them to perform jobs that cannot be accomplisehd with machinery,

* *&

jobs which are not hard physical labor and not job unsuitable for
women". It is also noted that the child_cAu r._ nte-rs are
insu i --tit--in 1980 there were only 832 day care centers for 90 000
children, or for about 8 % of the children six years or under. The
authors stress however tat these problems are recognized by the FMC
and the Communist Party. These institutions address the question of
the double journey as a basic issue. But, while it is given credit to
the FMC for the Family code of 1975, and for pressing or more jobs for
women, this organization is criticized for holding "infrequent
national conferences (1962, 1974 and 1980).

The authors point out that in 1984, women comprised 36 % of the
work force, and that in many factories a quota of jobs is-reserved to
womeg, The authors mention that f-TiTi new Celia Sanchez textile
factory, for example, ..785 of the 4 089 jobs or 44 .have one to
women. By 1980, 22 % of he members of the national assembly were
women". But it is also stressed the low partijciationof women_in the
decision making sphere. According oo the authors: "In the council of
State there are 27 men and 2 women. Of Cuba's 32 minstrs in 1983, only
1 was a woman. cuba a perhaps 100 ambassadors. About one-half dozen
are women" (p. 89).

The above remarks are commonly mentioned in other publications on
the topic. The authors also observe that Fidel Castro is called
"Cuba's leading feminist" but there are no signs "he would like to
share his owers with a woman". The authors do no support this remark
with empirical evidences and since they also recognize that women's
opportunities depend of a more stable domestic economy, and that men
today in Cuba have less power on wives and daughters than before the
Revolution, their point is not clearly understood, chiefly if
historical explanations and sociologial comprehension more than value
judgements are expected. Anyhow the article is recommended chiefly for
the updated references and data.
