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. Dicember. 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 work:
"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 colective tribune", and she focuses chiefly on testimonies of readers, and on interviewers with women on working conditions and on men-women relations.
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:
UEl machismo no se combate por decreto, es una labor cotidiana y constante en la que las mujeres desempenamos un papel fundamental."
1986 Digame Usted (II) Por que nie 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 completou
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 continously 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 discriminations 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 interviewed.
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. Dicember 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.

In Halebsky, Sandor and Kirk, John M.. Twenty-Five Years of
Revolution, 1959-1984.
The authors point out that the traditional structure of the
family was shatered by the Revolution and that Cuban women are called upon "to excel 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 V in 1958 to 15.6 X 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 l68?i969de to the nationalization of small enterprises. In 1969 about 100 000 women joined the labor market. Divorce rates increased from 8.57% 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 women were absent from the construction industry
According to the authors: "Castro wanted women to work but he
wanted them to perfom 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__cr centers are insufi-ce no4--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 organizaion is criticized for helding "infrequent national coferences (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 women The authors mentio tha tYw- ftE ne Celia Sanchez textile factory, for example,_ L785 of the 4 or 44 have gone to women. By 1980, 22 % of he members of the national assembly were women". But it is also stressed the low prti-c4iati-on of womenin the decision making sphere. According oo the authors: "In the council of State th~eaFr&27 men and 2 women. Of Cuba's 32 minstrs in 1983, only I 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.
