This chapter addresses Sánchez’s role within the post- revolutionary Cuban state. Sánchez served in several official positions in the Cuban government, including Secretary to the President and as a member of the Communist Party. She initiated and executed with almost complete autonomy a vast array of large-scale construction projects. She also traveled widely both nationally and internationally as an ambassador for the revolution. She attended to individual Cubans’ daily concerns in ways that shaped how Cubans understood her as an example of the New Woman.
