Acting on Faith Premiere

On Tuesday, April 26, 2005, the Pluralism Project sponsored a premiere of Acting on Faith: Women and New Religious Activism in America, a documentary produced by Pluralism Project Affiliate Rachel Antell and narrated by Dr. Diana L. Eck.

The film offers a glimpse into the lives and work of three American women: Laila Al-Marayati, a Muslim; Shamita Das Dasgupta, a Hindu; and Mushim Ikeda-Nash, a Buddhist. Through their stories, the film provides insight into the powerful streams of thought and action created by women activists of different religious and cultural traditions here in the United States.
