Oct. 17, 2012. A woman places a flower onto the names of domestic violence victims during the annual “March of Brides” in downtown Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic.
The yearly “March of Brides,” which this year took place Oct. 17, mourns the death of a Dominican-American woman named Gladys Ricart, who was shot in 1999 by an ex on her wedding day to another man. It’s also meant as a protest against domestic violence in general.
“We won’t stand for any more violence and criminality.”
