Even as a young girl growing up in Ojo de Agua, Dominican Republic, Minerva Mirabal had a keen sense of justice, and was never afraid to stand up for the powerless. Not surprisingly, the tenacious young woman became a lawyer and an activist. However, as the threats of a tyrannical dictatorship edged closer to her own home and family, her refusal to be silent became more dangerous. This is the inspiring account of one woman and her sisters, the “Butterflies,” who defied their fear and raised their voices, courageously becoming an inspiration to the world.
