On November 25, 1960, the bodies of three sisters were found near the bottom of a cliff on the north coast of the Dominican Republic. The official daily 'El Caribe' reports that it had been an accident, but it does not mention that a fourth sister lives. Nor does it mention the sisters' fierce opposition to the General Trujillo's dictatorship. This is their story: how Minerva started the tragedy by refusing Trujillo; how Patria became an opponent from the church itself; how Maria Teresa joined the revolution through the love. And how they lost their wings, but not their courage. They were Las Mariposas - "The Butterflies". Written by

The movie In The Time of the Butterflies was a inspiring movie for young women. It shows you that you don't step down from something that you know is right and just because someone tells you too. This movie also shows you how Trujillo ruled over the Dominican republic for thirty years. I would like to see more of his rulings and understand how the people of that time went through.even though Trujillo was wrong the Maribal sisters stood up for there rights,beliefs,and fought for justices till there deaths.
I believe that if you take the strength of the Maribal sisters you would understand that it is OK for you to stand up for what you believe in.
