Trujillo, one of the more brutal dictators of the Dominican Republic, appears to have been quite fond of erecting Obelisks. A kilometre east of the Male Obelisk (see my tip on that sight), you'll find La Obelisca or El ObeliscoHembra (the Female Obelisk), which was erected by the dictator in 1941 to honour the DR's repayment of outstanding loans to the US, incurred by previous Dominican administrations. I'm not entirely certain what makes this Obelisk female while the other one is male, but you can probably find a well-informed Dominican who can give you a tip. In any case, this monument is close to the intersection of the Malecón and Piña, south of the Puerta de la Misericordia.
