Show Notes

Listen to this episode to get your weekly hit of Spanish practice and learn the incredible story of the three Mirabal Sisters and the legacy they have left behind, not just in their country but around the world.

Often referred to as 'Las Mariposas', these are three incredible Dominican women who deserve to be spoken about a lot more around the world. Despite the prejudices against them, they stood up to the terrible dictatorship of Rafael Trujillo in the Dominican Republic and fought to spread the news of the wrongdoing of this regime. For their tireless work, they lost their lives, but their sacrifice ultimately lead to the overthrow of this man, which had been their goal from the start.
