Maria Teresa Mirabal

One of 3 Dominican Mirabal sisters assassinated in November of 1960 for opposing the routine of dictator Rafael Trujillo. A 4th sister, Dede, escaped loss of life on that fateful time and later opened up a museum in her sisters’ honor. She and her three sisters produced an anti-Trujillo firm known as the Movement from the Fourteenth of June. They followed the underground code name of Todas las Mariposas (The Butterflies). In the years before their murder, she and her sister Minerva had been imprisoned and put through torture on many occasions. Her hubby, combined with the husbands of her sisters Minerva and Patria, was imprisoned for his politics activism. On the path to go to their spouses in jail, the three sisters had been intercepted with a government-ordered assassin. Roque Dalton was another Latin American groundbreaking who was simply murdered for his activism.
