Feminist Film Nights – In the Time of the Butterflies – The Mirabal Sisters – 6.3.2016

Once a month IWS invites to you to get together, watch films about and/or by women and discuss them afterwards… Our next film is about the Mirabal sisters:


In the Time of the Butterflies

Three sisters; Patria, Minerva, and Maria Teresa Mirabal, were murdered on the 25th November 1960 on the orders of the President of the Dominican Republic, Rafael Trujillo Molina (El Jefe). They were leading figures in a movement to bring democracy to the country. In memory of the Mirabal sisters, the UN designated the 25th November as the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women in 1999. The Mirabal sisters are pictured above – we will be showing the film based on their lives.
