25 November ¨International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women¨
Ravenna, Italy 2015 for Subsidence Festival.
This wall is located in the ¨Giardino Sorelle Mirabal¨, named this way in honor to the Mirabal Sisters, four Dominican sisters who opposed the dictatorship of Rafael Trujillo and were involved in clandestine activities against his regime. They use to called themselves ¨The Butterflies¨.
Three of the sisters were assassinated on 25 November 1960. The Mirabal´s death was a catalyst for change, and was the first event in a long sequence of events that led to freedom and democracy in the Dominican Republic.
In 1999 the 25 November was designated as the ¨International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women¨ in their honor.
Many special thanks to Antonella Midka Perazza and Mirko Dadich for the love, care and nice company, thanks to Chiara and Marco and to all the women from ¨Casa della donne¨ for the love.
