My friend, Marcia, was in India for a few weeks in August.
She arrived prepared to teach workers how to create and use story ropes with women.
I asked Marcia what are some issues women face in that culture. A few thoughts:
Unless they are in a high cast, women are valued much less than men • Women suffer beatings by their husbands • It is thought that maybe in the next life, a woman will come back as a man, rather than a woman.
Seems like there would be a lot of stories for the rope in India.............more ahead.......
