The Mirabal sisters fought in the 1950s for freedom and democracy in the Dominican Republic and were killed by the dictator Trujillo. Their death was the catalyst for other revolutionaries to take up the fight for freedom. The day of the Mirabals' death, November 25th, was designated by the United Nations as the "Day of Non-Violence Against Women" in honor of the Mirabals.
