If Anita was alive today she would react angry, sad and confused. She would be angry because everybody deserves a education no matter their race, gender and religion. She would be angry at the world and people because they are still stuck in the past, they can't see how the world is today. She would also be sad because it would probably remind her back when she was a littler girl and how she couldn't go to school because of Trujillo. Also how she had to go into hiding because of what her father did to be free from Trujillo. She would feel pity for the girls because they can't get an education and maybe they can't do nothing because they are scared. Anita would also be confused on why they point let girls and women get an education? What type of people would do that? Also how can people think like that?

Anita would react to this article surprised and happy. Surprised because of how many people attended to it and surprised that even men joined the march. She would also be happy because of how many people stand up for what is right including men standing up for women. Maybe the pink would remind her of Chucha because she would always wear purple. Anita would probably ask why cat hats? and probably bother her sister asking her what it means, but she would be happy that women out their are not afraid to stand for what is right.


Here in this picture their is a Asian woman and a colored woman on the reach bar it says Women need to...; be put in their place, know their place, stay home, be slaves, be in the kitchen etc. This picture shows that their is people who think like this, they think that women are inferior to men. Minou Tavarez said “Along that journey, Minerva, Patria and Maria Teresa have been with us, giving legitimacy to our fight. And here in this setting, together with you, our friends, we wish once again to rise our voice and say that Minerva lives, that the Mirabal sisters live, no longer just in the Dominican Republic but here among you, today and every time their example ceases to be invisible and serves to repudiate the violence that our societies have visited upon women…”(17).

As we can see here, their is only one woman in sometime of office work, you can also see a lot of men around her not noticing her. Back than women couldn't get jobs like working in a office or being a doctor they couldn't get a professional job. In the book Mama says, " Ay Dios mil, spare me just what we need skirts in the law"(10). What Mama is trying to say is that she disagrees that women should be involved in law and do crazy things using their minds.



In this visual they use a cartoon drawing and a wrestling ring to demonstrate gender inequality. The visual the referee is the world and the woman is perfectly fine, but the man is all beat up. Also you can see that the referee is stepping on the females glove string and smiling at her and the male is all beat up and he won. This picture is saying that the world will choose the male instead of the female even though if the view on woman change. In a speech Minou Tavarez Mirabal [Minerva Mirabal daughter] spoke " The task that remains before us is that of the rescuing and political initiative shown by these woman"(3) "The need to bring about 'equal opportunity for women in political life"(4). What she is trying to say is that the world needs to move on and start treating women equally.

  

Here in this picture we can see the male is a roll of tape and the women is wrapped in tape. This represents that men have control over women and they are too scared to do something. In the book their is an example of this happening to Dede one of the sisters "What if I can't Jaimito thinks its suicide. He told me he'll leave me if I get mixed up in this thing."(180) In this quote Dede finally tells her sisters her fear, she is scared that Jaimito is going to leave her if she joined the resistance with her sisters.
