The Leadership Conference of Women Religious has produced a 56-minute documentary narrating the virtually untold story of the rich history and contributions of Catholic sisters in the United States.

Through "Women & Spirit: Catholic Sisters in America," you will meet women who corresponded with President Thomas Jefferson, talked down bandits and roughnecks, lugged pianos into the wilderness, and provided the nation's first health insurance to Midwestern loggers. Discover sisters' courage during the Civil War, the Gold Rush, the San Francisco Earthquake, the Influenza Epidemic, the Civil Rights Movement, and Hurricane Katrina.

The video complements the exhibit that has been traveling the country since May 2009. Its last stop is at The California Museum of History, Women & the Arts (Sacramento, California) from Jan. 24, 2012 to June 3, 2012.
