The members of the Federation of Cuban Women (FMC) in Ciego de Ávila celebrated the 62nd anniversary of their organization, with the pride of representing more than forty percent of the technical labor force and more than fifty in leadership positions.
During the celebrations for the founding of the FMC in the province, productive works, meetings with leaders of other generations and federates incorporated to the economic, political and social life of the Avilanian territory were held.
As part of the homage, in the Houses of Orientation for Women and the Family of the ten municipalities, short summer courses were developed to contribute to the formation of values and civic education of the federates.
