La Doña

La Doña, essays on our Dominican Matriarchs share narratives of the women in our families on how they have carried the weight of, protecting, guiding, and educating in a society where men are dominant, and the home is ruled by the matriarch.

Our contributors describe women fighting and embracing expectations of the matriarchal role and what they left behind.
