Περίληψη: ""Gender and Democracy in Cuba" traces the progress of women's social and economic rights brought about by the early revolutionary government. Drawing on interviews with high-ranking Cuban officials and research gathered during visits to the island, Luciak argues that democracy cannot be successfully consolidated without the full participation of women in the political process - and the support of men - both at the party and societal levels. "Gender and Democracy in Cuba" also provides a foundation for understanding the evolving role of women and the meaning of democracy in the transition period of post-Castro Cuba." -- Book jacket.
