A Walk to Beautiful

The peops over at Runway Moms have a new project that I would like to tell you about:

Opens in New York on February 8, 2008
Opens in Los Angeles on February 29, 2008

Description: A WALK TO BEAUTIFUL tells the stories of five Ethiopian women who endure devastating injuries arising from obstructed labor during
childbirth and journey to the Addis Ababa Fistula Hospital to reclaim their
lost dignity. Rejected by their husbands and ostracized by their
communities, these young women are abandoned to lives of loneliness and
shame. The trials they endure‹and their attempts to rebuild their lives‹tell
a universal story of hope, courage, and transformation. Through the women¹s
own eyes, and in their own voices, a larger story is revealed, that of the
seemingly intractable problems facing women in the developing world,
including under-nutrition, child marriage, and lack of obstetric care.
