Lent 39: Widows

True Grit: Women Taking On the World, for God's Sake

Millions of widows in sub-Saharan Africa are robbed, beaten, raped and evicted from their homes — often by their own in-laws — because women are considered unworthy of equal property rights. Unlawful treatment is even more common when a husband dies of AIDS.

Wondering what this is all about? Read my post explaining why and how I’m commemorating Lent this year.
