An exhibition of photo portraits of 127 Dominican women that made headlines in DR is coming to New York. The exhibition, titled "Mujer," was conceived by Giovanna Bonnelly, a TV show personality, and photographer Nicole Sanchez. "Muher" is meant to bring awareness to domestic violence, which is a serious problem in Dominican homes, and gained more attention when a portrait of Haitian immigrants-rights activist Sonia Pierre was vandalized. The exhibition in New York features New York Dominican women in particular, from cab drivers to college presidents. [Daily News]
