Dominicanas | Women’s Archive

In my own discomfort of how history is presented in school, this project opens the door to discovering Dominican women, other than the three we repeat by memory since second grade. Dominicanas is a digital archive that invites the users to share the stories and experiences of women that have impacted their world. This collective archive with overlapping stories help us to better define our Dominican culture today. My hope is to highlight a side of our community that is normally not shown in history and to ideally empower younger girls through these examples.
