The holy city of Vrindavan India, also known as the “City of Widows” harbors nearly 20,000 widows who are abandoned on the streets and flock there in the hopes of finding “Moksha” – Salvation. In Indian society, widows are stigmatized and maligned.  Learn about a little known yet urgent subject and help bring social justice for women and societies worldwide!
