Havana - Cuba's President Miguel Diaz-Canel paid tribute this Tuesday to the legacy of the revolutionary and women rights' defender Vilma Espin (1930-2007) at fulfilling 90 years of her birth.
As an example of a woman, combatant, professional and leader of the fight for women and human rights, the president described the founder of 'Federacion de Mujeres Cubanas-FMC' (Cuban Women Association) on Twitter.
The head of State also assured that Cuban young women paid homage to her by heroically fighting against SARS-CoV-2 novel coronavirus, which causes Covid-19 disease.
Diaz-Canel shared a thought of the leader of the Revolution, Fidel Castro, originally spread on June 20, 2007 because of the Cuban heroine's death, and published again this Tuesday by Granma daily under the title 'Vilma, or the necessary example.'
'Vilma's example is today more necessary than ever. She consecrated all her life to fight for the woman when in Cuba most women were biased as human being as it happens in the rest of the world, with honorable revolutionary exemptions,' expressed Fidel Castro.
After the triumph of the Revolution in 1959, Vilma Espin worked as the main leader of political and State actions to materialize the full access of Cuban women to their rights.
She founded the FMC on August 23, 1960 pursuing that goal to boost policies and programmes aimed at achieving the full exercise of women's equity in all areas.
