Devadasi A Life Without Education April 20, 2015

A tradition that is illegal, but still exists in many parts of India is one of 'devdasi' women - women known as 'God's servants' - who serve in temples, are illiterate and not allowed access to education, says this video from the Video Volunteers organization. A 45-minute film called 'Women of God - A documentary on Bijapur Devadasis' by Melwyn Pinto SJ can also be found on YouTube, here: http://bit.ly/1NVoK4r
