Pray the Devil Back to Hell
(2008) Directed by Gini Reticker, chronicles the remarkable story of the courageous
Liberian women who came together to end a bloody civil war and bring peace to their
shattered country. A story of sacrifice, unity and transcendence, Pray the Devil Back
to Hell honors the strength and perseverance of the women of Liberia. Inspiring, uplifting,
and most of all motivating, it is a compelling testimony of how grassroots activism
can alter the history of nations.
This year’s conference theme, "Women and Global Change: Achieving Peace Through Empowering
Women" was inspired by the 2011 Nobel Peace Prize winners Ellen Johnson Sirleaf and
Leymah Bbowee, who is featured in the documentary, from Liberia and Tawakkol Karman
from Yemen. The peace-building work each of these three women have endured and continue
to work on to this day, has set in motion an empowering movement for social, political
and economic change. This year’s conference is sure to inspire, educate, and transform
how global movements are local movements.
