Women in Cuba: The Revolution Within the Revolution

Lindsey Stevenson

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review


This paper analyzes the situation of women in Cuba since the revolution of 1959. Through the application of three theories- the Marxist theory, the feminist theory of Shulamith Firestone, and the feminist theory of Juliet Mitchell-an analysis is made which reflects the extent to which the Cuban Women's Movement evolved along the line of these theories and the extent to which it strayed. The result is a portrayal of the strengths and weaknesses of both the Cuban Revolutionary Women's Movement and the strengths and weaknesses of the three theories.
