Posted on 05/01/2012 4:31:35 PM PDT by PJ-Comix
Forget the fact that Cuba is a one-party totalitarian state where leadership is entirely dependent on how closely related one is to a certain Fidel Castro rather than any electoral process. The good news is that "Cuba may be the most feminist country in Latin America." That laughable premise has been published by New York Times blogger Luisita Lopez Torregrosa. Of course, that revelation would be news to the best known female group in Cuba, the Ladies In White (photo) who have been oppressed by the Communist regime and their thugs. Ms Torregrosa bases much of her analysis on the leftwing pro-Castro Center for Democracy in the Americas which helps explain her complete divorce from reality in her paean to one party feminism:
In sheer numbers and percentages, Cuban women’s advance is notable. Cuba has a high number of female professional and technical workers (60 percent of the total work force in those areas) and in Parliament (43 percent), as well as high levels of primary, secondary and tertiary education enrollment, according to the Gender Gap report.

Women have total equality in Cuba with men.
Everyone’s equally miserable.
Makes sense. Castro has either killed or driven out of the country all of the men.
Who says propaganda can’t be hilarious?
THe New York Times gave us the great Castro/pro-communist delusional correspondent Herbert Matthews (Castro is a democrat), and earlier, Walter Duranty, a Stalin agitprop mouthpiece, so why not this pro-Castro propaganda whore?
Just doing what earlier NYT fools did, deceiving America, 24/7.
Luisita, you propagandist for Fidel, meet a real Cuban woman, Yoani Sanchez, who is doing the actual heavy lifting.
Welcome to plantation thinking. The serfs know their place.
Only because Raul and Fidel dress up in evening gowns every Saturday night.
