Open to the Public

For the 16 Days of Activism to End Gender Violence, students, staff, and faculty will read and discuss passages from Juana Gamero de Coca’s monograph Sexualidad, Violencia y Cultura (Desdeabajo, 2013) and from Julia Alvarez’s novel In The Time of the Butterflies (Algonquin, 1994).
The 16 Days of Activism start on November 25, the UN-declared Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women in honor of Minou, Patria, and Maria Teresa Mirabal, the three sisters whose life and work to bring down Rafael Trujillo’s dictatorship were the subject of Julia Alvarez’s book.
