Renowned human rights activist Minou Tavárez Mirabal to speak in Providence this Saturday
Dominican activist, politician, and philologist, Minou Tavárez Mirabal, will visit Rhode Island to discuss national policy, female empowerment, and violence against women in today’s world. She will offer a public lecture at the Rhode Island State House at 5:30PM this Saturday, March 10, 2018.
Tavárez is the daughter of the late Dominican Republic political activist Minerva Mirabal, who, along with two of her sisters, Patria and Maria Teresa, founded the 1960 Movement of the Fourteenth of June to overthrow Dominican dictator Rafael Trujillo. The story was widely popularized through the award-winning 1994 novel “In the Time of the Butterflies” by Julia Alvarez. Her talk will include the Mirabal sisters’ account.
The lecture, which is free and open to the public, will be held at the RI State House, 82 Smith Street, Providence. Saturday, March 10 @ 5:30PM.
