In celebration of International Women’s Day, Women’s Studies will screen of the film, Pray the Devil Back to Hell, in on Monday, March 8 in 101 Textor, 7-9 PM.
Pray the Devil Back to Hell chronicles the story of a band of Liberian women who came together in the midst of a bloody civil war, took on the violent warlords and corrupt Charles Taylor regime, and won a long-awaited peace for their shattered country in 2003. As the rebel noose tightened upon Monrovia, and peace talks faced collapse, the women of Liberia – Christian and Muslims united - successfully demanded an end to the fighting. The women of Liberia are living proof that moral courage and non-violent resistance can succeed, even where the best efforts of traditional diplomacy have failed.
Women’s Studies is planning multiple events highlighting women’s political activism. Stay tuned to Intercom for details on our upcoming events. All events are free and open to the public.
