Ladies in White

Being a dissident in Cuba is not an easy job. It takes guts and balls. And if you are a woman, well it takes resolve. Such is the resolve the Ladies in White have - a group of women who are the wives of political prisoners.

Every Sunday they march wearing white t-shirts with the photograph of their husbands stenciled in. Every Sunday on their way to Mass and on their way back. Public dissent pays a price.
