A Walk to Beautiful Film Screening

The award winning feature-length documentary A Walk to Beautiful tells the stories of five Ethiopian women who suffer from devastating childbirth injuries and embark on a journey to reclaim their lost dignity. Rejected by their husbands and ostracized by their communities, these women are left to spend the rest of their lives in loneliness and shame. They make the choice to take the long and arduous journey to the Addis Ababa Fistula Hospital in search of a cure and a new life.

Come join us as we journey to Ethiopia together through the magic of film. Our goal is that by the end of the evening, everyone in the room will not only know what is obstetric fistula, but that you will be compelled to take action. 

When: Thursday, February 28th, 8:00-10:00PM 
Where: Disney Screening Room, 500 Park Avenue at 59th St.
