The murderers gathered their dead bodies, put them in their Jeep and pushed them over the cliff to make it seem like an accident. However, the revolution they started had began after their death. She's still alive.
She stayed with her father and mother and chose not to join her sisters fighting for freedom of the Dominican Republic.
However, she hates November 25, because visitors would come to her house to see how the Mirabal sisters lived and ask her questions about them. Attended all girl boarding school with her sisters.
She was the 3rd oldest sister.
married Manuel (Manolo) Tavarez Justo
gave birth to Minou and Manolito.
As she grew up, she wanted to become a lawyer, because she wanted justice in her country.
She knew about Trujillio's plans and tried her best to prevent them from happening.
She wanted her family members to not get involved in what she was doing, because she was afraid they were going to be killed. She was a very religious woman
She was the oldest sister of all the Mirabal sisters.
She wanted to become a nun, but she wasn't able to become one.
she was sent to Colegio Inmaculada Concepcion with Minerva and Dede when she was 14 ears old.
Married a farmer named Pedro Gonzalez when she was 17 years old.
they had four children named Raul Ernesto ,Nelson Enrique, and Juan Antonio (who dies a few months after he was born) and, Noris Mercedes.
She was against Trujillo as well as Minerva and Maria.
She wanted a better future for the country and the children who lived in the country. At a young age, Minerva gave her a diary to write secrets in.
She was the youngest sister.
married an engineer named Leandro Guzman and had a child named Jaqueline.
She was curious about was Minerva have been doing and then she later on found out and joined her sister.
She was the first sister to join Minerva in her secret meetings. Maria Teresa and Minerva were put into jail. They were in a torture prison called La Cuarenta and was transferred to La Victoria prison and was freed later. What did the Mirabal sisters do? They put up flyers to expose what Trujillo was up to.
They gathered the families from the neighborhood and made secret meetings in their house against the government. How I feel about women getting involved into high politics I think they shouldn't have gotten involved, because they could've gotten their families killed as well as them, but I also think wat they did was courageous, because I don't think anyone else would've go up against Trujillo. Trujillo He had been ruling as dictator since 1930 and was murdered in 1961.
He became president from 1930 to 1938 and was reelected from 1942 to 1952.
He impregnates a girl named Lina and hid her in a mansion in Miami so his wife doesn't kill her.
His plan was to make a pure Dominican race.
