The relatively successful struggle for women's liberation in Cuba has been, in the words of Fidel Castro, a revolution within the revolution. This volume collects materials that provide a perspective on the struggle from the viewpoint of key participants in Cuba's revolution. They include accounts of the early years of women's involvement in the Cuban Revolution from Vilma Espín, an important figure in the underground movement against Batista and later president of the Federation of Cuban Women and member of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Cuba; three speeches by Fidel Castro; and a Communist Party thesis "On the full exercise of women's equality." An introduction by the editor provides historical context. The 1974 Cuban maternity law for working women and excerpts from the 1975 Family Code are also included as an appendix.
