Abstract

Rebecca Samuel Shah's (research fellow with both the Berkley Center for Religion, Peace, and World Affairs, and with the Institute for Studies of Religion at Baylor University) research and personal contacts have focused on female converts to Christianity in India who come from “untouchable” or "Dalit" backgrounds. Shah asserts that full religious freedom -- understood as full equality before the law and a full, realized equality of dignity and agency -- contribute to the day-to-day well-being and flourishing of poor Dalit women in India.
