'Women & Spirit' now available in DVD form

We written before about the widely acclaimed exhibition that has made its way around the US: “Women and Spirit: Catholic Sisters in America,” the 3,200-square foot display featuring the courageous work of women religious through the American experience.

That exhibition is now available in DVD form. The mother of the exhibition, the Leadership Conference of Women Religious, has now produced a documentary narrative to bring this story to those who might not have had a chance to see the exhibit and to those who have, but want to refresh the memories.

Narrated by NPR senior news analyst and ABC news political commentator Cokie Roberts, the documentary retells the story of quiet courage exercised by these women during many dramatic moments in US history.

The 56-minute DVD documentary also includes a film study guide, a digital exhibit, and videos from the traveling Women & Spirit exhibit. It sells for $19,95, plus postage and handling.

Order information is available here.
