    schema:reviewBody ""In this comprehensive examination of Cuban gender politics and democracy, Ilja A. Luciak examines the indispensable roles women played in the Cuban revolution. Fidel Castro considered women's emancipation to be "a revolution in the revolution" and Che Guevara in particular recognized the important contribution women could make to the revolutionary struggle. While most women engaged in open civil dissent and staged demonstrations, a few, such as Oniria Gutierrez and Celia Sanchez, even engaged in combat and held key leadership posts." "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." ;
