Water surrounds us and makes up most of our bodies. It connects us and moves us as it is recycled through different places and forms. So what does the water remember? Women who participated in FemNorthNet’s “Women from Unions and Northern Communities Joining for a Sustainable Future” workshop in summer 2014 explored this question in depth. Our new video, “What the Water Remembers”, captures their responses and reflections on the memory of water.
