HAVANA TIMES — In the traditional Cuban family, which are still many, women are the first up in the morning, make breakfast, wake the family and guarantee that all leave on time for their school or work, including themselves in most cases.
In this report we highlight women in Cuban society.

When I asked my very well academically qualified and most attractive wife who holds a responsible position why she had never married a Cuban, she responded: “Cuban men are too macho, but you and I are equal.” praxis 1871 is correct, Cuban men expect their wives to work similar or longer hours than themselves, then to return home to clean the house, wash the clothes and prepare the meals while they watch Messi and Barcelona on TV. By 8.00 p.m. the house is clean, supper is ready and they can watch Senor Rodriguez and Agnes reading the “noticea”. It is the women of Cuba who hold Cuban society through “la familia” together. Only Cuban women have had the courage to demonstrate – the women in white!
Patriarchy prevails. The revolution did not liberate women.
