Kids have always suffered during war and crisis, but there's a sense the burden of instability is being increasingly borne by children.
The cable channel Lifetime just launched an ambitious new reality TV show. “The Week the Women Went” is a five-part series focusing on the small South Carolina town of Yemassee, where all the women from ages 18 to 82 were recently whisked off to Florida for a week-long retreat.
The show follows the women as they relax in Florida, and also the men and children left behind in South Carolina.
Billed as a social experiment of biblical proportions, we watch the men struggle with juggling business, family and planning a beauty pageant. “The Week the Women Went” airs on Lifetime on Tuesday nights.
