One of the last people to see her best friend, Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl, alive, Asra Nomani figures prominently in the acclaimed film, A Mighty Heart, starring Angelina Jolie. The film captures Daniel's wife Mariane and as they struggle to get answers and provide each other consolation and support during the dark days surrounding his abduction and murder. Nomani continues to search for the truth about who killed Daniel through The Pearl Project, an investigative program she now heads at Georgetown University.
Nomani, a Muslim born in India who later immigrated to America with her family, is a former Wall Street Journal correspondent who had written on Islam and the Middle East for The Washington Post, The New York Times, and Time. She covered and analyzed the major events taking place, as well as reported from the front lines on the post 9-11 conflict in Afghanistan and throughout the region.
Today, Nomani also focuses on reclaiming women’s rights in the Muslim world and wrote the critically-acclaimed Standing Alone in Mecca: An American Woman's Struggle for the Soul of Islam on this subject. She is also a courageous activist and advocate for all women, in the US and worldwide, on such issues as equality, social and economic justice, and domestic abuse.
