Pandita Ramabai: Scholar, Reformer, Truth Seeker

Dannah Gresh: Imagine becoming a widow at fourteen or fifteen years of age!

Here’s how Pandita Ramabai described the plight of teenage widows she observed while growing up in nineteenth century India.

Pandita Ramabai: “Girls of fourteen and fifteen who hardly know the reason why they are so cruelly deprived of everything they like are often seen wearing sad countenances, their eyes swollen from shedding bitter tears. They are glad to find a dark corner where they may hide their faces as if they had done something shameful and criminal.

Dannah: We are about to hear how this generation of young widows began to discover hope.
