Violeta Bosico, shown here within the Movement of Dominican-Haitian Women offices in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, could not be identified in photographs because her life could be put at risk from court proceedings surrounding her fight against the Dominican government, which denied the 26-year-old proper documentation to become a Dominican citizen. The case garnered worldwide attention when an international court ruled that the Dominican government violated basic human rights laws by denying Bosico a birth certificate.
