Read Handout 2: Traditional Roles of Women in the Dominican Republic. (You can find this handout in the readings for Unit 5).
Minerva Mirabal learns of her father’s infidelity in Chapter 6. Re-read pages 92 – 93. What do we learn about Minerva Mirabal in this short scene? Why does she tell her father that her kindness toward his mistress and children are “thinks a woman does”?
Does understanding the traditional roles of women in the Dominican Republic make it more shocking when Minerva slaps Trujillo? Why or why not?

Figurative language can illuminate a complex idea or emotion, as when Dede describes her struggle to join her sister or obey her husband at the end of Chapter 6. Remember a situation when you experienced strong or mixed feelings that seemed difficult to put into words. Write a paragraph about that situation, using figurative language to describe your feelings.

ENTRY 7–After you read chapter 11
(worth 10 points)
There are several moments throughout the novel when the importance of writing is evident. One example takes place on page 227, as Maria Teresa receives a smuggled notebook to use as a diary while she is in jail. She writes, “It feels good to write things down. Like there will be a record.” Imagine you are one of the Mirabal sisters or their husbands and write a short journal entry or letter from that person’s point of view.
