This wonderful dramatization of real-life events, The Invention of Wings, by Sue Monk Kidd, sparked one of the best book club discussions our neighborhood book club has had in its short life of about a year-and-a-half. There was something in this book to which that almost all of us could relate in one way or another: human rights, women’s rights, social mores, to name a few. Of course, the story engendered a discussion of how far women’s rights, in general, have come.
One member thought we have come too far, but the rest of us are eager to continue progressing. After all, women still are not paid the same as men for doing the same job. What’s up with that, anyway? Slavery still exists in our world, but these days, it is more likely to be human trafficking of girls, young women, and young boys.
