2013 DELEGATION FLYER INFORMATION:

Please join us for our Fall 2013 Women's Research Delegation which will include attending the 2013 University of Havana "Women in the 21st Century" International Women's Conference.

Specific information about the University of Havana Conference and its Call for Proposals may be found here.

Do you want to learn more about--and exchange ideas in--a nation that has committed to implementing full Constitutional equality, including prohibition of discrimination on the basis of gender, race and sexual orientation? Are you impressed that Cuba was the among the very first nations to ratify the Women's Treaty/CEDAW and that the Federation of Cuban Women has used CEDAW to create a national Plan of Action for women's human rights and gender equality? Wondering how Cuba has achieved 95% literacy since 1961 (source: UNESCO) and offers free education thru university level? Want to know more about Cuba's 1+ year paid family leave for both women and men to support both their careers and family lives? Curious about how Cuba's National Center for Sex Education is leading a national Campaign to End Homophobia and provide for full reproductive choice and justice based on health care for all? Interested in how the greening of Cuba creates a model of sustainable development and supports its sovereignty as a nation?

Cuba's tangible policies for advancing human dignity, environmental preservation and gender, racial and sexual equality with resources and organizing efforts will be a significant part of our Delegation's journey.

Co-leaders Jan Strout, Co-chair US Women & Cuba Collaboration and Zenaida Mendez, Collaboration National Advisory Board member and NYS National Organization for Women (NOW) President, have been leading successful women's delegations to Cuba and other nations in Latin America for over 15 years.
