International Women’s Day Luncheon With Keynote Speaker Minou Tavarez Mirabel
March 8, 12:15 pm to 1:45 pm
Join Us in Celebrating International Women’s Day, “Uniting the Women of Today for a Better Tomorrow”
A light lunch and table discussion will be from 12:15 to 12:45 pm and the keynote will be from 12:45 to 1:45 pm.
Minou Tavárez Mirabal, renowned human rights activist, politician, and philologist from the Dominican Republic is our keynote speaker. She is the daughter of the late Dominican Republic political activist Minerva Mirabal Tavarez, who, along with two of her sisters, founded the 1960 Movement of the Fourteenth of June to overthrow Dominican dictator Rafael “El Chivo” Trujillo. The story was widely popularized through the award-winning 1994 novel “In the Time of the Butterflies” by Julia Alvarez. Her talk will include the Mirabal sisters’ account.
Minou will reflect on her experience as a female politician and her family and personal history/legacy. She will encourage the audience to reflect on four intertwining pillars: history, gender, politics and democracy.
