Abstract / Summary
In 1971, Ofelia Domínguez Navarro wrote _50 años de una vida_, a memoir of her life. It includes most of _De 6 a 6_, but it also stands alone as a memoir and a testimony of Cuban life and society throughout her lifetime. As Cuba was a leader in testimonial writing, Ofelia’s contribution fit in with the methods of historical and literary inquiry. Ofelia Domínguez Navarro (1896-1977) belonged to the feminist, nationalist, and communist revolutionary groups in Cuba between 1920 and 1977. She wrote a memoir of her four imprisonments during the dictatorships of President Gerardo Machado and President Carlos Mendieta. She was a teacher, lawyer, firebrand, journalist, and activist for women and the working class. She was also one of the initial members of the Cuban Communist Party and a close friend of Julio Antonio Mella, its founder. She founded her own women’s and worker’s rights parties: the Unión Laborista de Mujeres and the Unión Radical de Mujeres in 1930 and 1931, respectively. She participated in the three national congresses on women’s rights, 1923, 1925, and 1939. She served on Dictator and President Fulgencio Batista’s delegation to the United Nations, ultimately leading it in 1957 and 1958.
