Unlike her sisters, Minerva wants freedom, independence and individuality. She feels trapped by her family and wants an education. To be tied down to a life dictated by men is incomprehensible. All of these things lead Minerva to become a huge part of the revolution. Her marriage to Manolo is a partnership of shared beliefs. Thus, she becomes more involved as a revolutionary than her sisters. She is also the most reckless.
