With Our Memory on the Future

This documentary was produced in 2005 by the Federation of Cuban Women (FMC) on the 45th anniversary of its founding. The film examines the progress women in Cuba have made since the workers and farmers of that country took power in 1959 and through subsequent advances in that country’s socialist revolution.

Through interviews with women and men and with girls and boys on the streets, in the workplace, and in the schoolyards, the attitudes towards women’s equality on the job, sexual mores, divorce, child rearing, and other questions in Cuba today are frankly discussed.

Leaders of the FMC describe the role of Cuba’s revolutionary government in fighting for and defending women’s rights over the last five decades.

In Spanish, with English subtitles.
