Since the triumph of the Cuban Revolution in 1959, the women of Cuba have been making tremendous gains in the struggle for women’s rights and equality, organizing a “Revolution within the Revolution” that continues to move forward today. Over the last 17 years of the Bolivarian Revolution, women in Venezuela have also made great advances in all sectors of society from healthcare and education to politics.
International Women’s day is the opportunity to celebrate the gains that women have made around the world in their struggle for justice and equality. The revolutionary women of Cuba and Venezuela are leading the way, not only in their own countries but in the world-wide struggle for women's rights.
For International Women’s Day 2016, Vancouver Communities in Solidarity with Cuba (VCSC) invites you to join us for a cultural and political evening to celebrate the revolutionary women of Cuba and Venezuela!

Thank you for reading this story…
More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable.
rabble.ca has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.
So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.
And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
