Notes
Issue of IAFN Newsletter included as part of the Anglican World for Easter 2000. An editorial and series of short reports from different agencies and countries about the role of fathers in contemporary families and society. The issue describes "patriarchal societies where the position of the man as the head of the family in `non negotiable'," and Western societies where this is not the pattern. "Articles from Africa and India cite Biblical texts to underline the male head-ship of the family. They go on to reveal both the strengths and the weaknesses of such head-ship: when abused it can make the lives of women and children inescapably miserable. .... Throughout the Anglican Communion there is evidence of the dislocation of rapid change, often in part brought about by economic forces which undermine the role of men for example as `breadwinner' of the family."
Article notes that Canada, which is "the most water-rich nation on the Earth, can supply almost 122,000 cubic metres per person per year". "Even in a temperate climate, human beings require a litre of water each day, or 0.35 cubic meters per year, to sustain life".
