Water: the movie

Today our women's book club added a movie to the book of the month: Water. I wasn't able to watch it with the ladies, but the community watched it this evening. Quite impressive, this representation of the earthly fate of widows in certain levels of Hindu society where child marriage was the norm. (The movie is set in the late 1930's.) Next time you hear someone complaining about the way women are treated in the Church, I suggest you encourage them to watch "Water." And then give thanks to God for western civilization. (Especially if you are a woman!)
