The femicide of Leidy Bacallao, a 17-year-old teenager, in a police station in Camalote, Camagüey, once again points out the lack of protection for women in Cuba and the inaction and responsibility of the State in this regard. Cuban feminists call for a state of emergency to be declared due to gender violence in the country.
