The Dominican Day Parade (DDP) revealed the names of 25 extraordinary Dominican women driving change across the fields of science, public service, arts and business, who will be honored at this year’s gala and parade. The first time the Dominican Day Parade takes an active role in celebrating the contributions of Dominican women, a key focus for the new board of directors, which was established in 2015.
The long-list of honorees is made up of notable women including a young Dominican activist known for helping women embrace their natural curls, to distinguished visual artists, whose work has been shown in the Smithsonian Museum of American Art, The Newark Museum, and El Muse o Del Barrio among many others. These are just a few examples of the remarkable Dominican women being honored by the Dominican Day Parade this year.
