By PAULINE TOOLE
"The role of women in C u b a
has changed since the revolu-
tion." Cuban-born author a n d
critic Lourdes Casals told a
small audience at the Interna-
tional Center yesterday. Speak-,
ing in Spanish, Casals discussed
the Cuban revolution and t h e
emerging status of women in
her homeland.
Casals was brought to t h e
United States while young, by
her parents who were fleeing
the newly installed Castro gov-
ernment.

even if th; elements aren't on
the Galens side, people cer-

Tonie Leeds, who has been

said that each year, total con-
tributions surpass the previous
year's amount.

1958, Tag Day netted $8,000,"

values, especially kthose focus-

Casals included the womens'
movement in a .much broader
Cuban s'riggle. "It is impossi-
ble to isolate the womens move-

with a larger class struggle. The
economics of liberation are con-
