Sponsored by the Marygrove College Women's Center, Women's Film Wednesday is a series of documentary films by and about women.  Screenings are free to Marygrove students, staff, and faculty.  The Women's Center is an inclusive environment.  All are welcome to attend.

A Walk to Beautiful

“In this award-winning documentary, a difficult journey that begins in hopelessness and shame for thousands of women in Ethiopia ends in a productive new life. The film tells the personal stories of rural women who make their way to Ethiopia's capital, Addis Ababa, seeking treatment for obstetric fistula, a life-shattering complication of childbirth. Filmed in a starkly beautiful landscape, the documentary juxtaposes the isolated lives of village women who are outcasts because of their medical condition, with the faraway hospital that offers a miracle after a long and arduous trek—a ‘walk to beautiful.’”

Location : Women's Center, LA 030
