Its International Woman’s Day and even in Cuba they are celebrating it.
President Fidel Castro gave Cuban women some good news on International Women’s Day: rice cookers are coming to every household.
“Those of you who like rice cookers, raise your hands,” Castro said to applause from hundreds of women. The 78-year-old leader spent two hours talking about the merits of pressure cookers.
Maybe next year Fidel will honor the women with some actual rice to put in the cooker so they can use it.
