“Pray the Devil Back to Hell” tells the extraordinary but less-known story of a small group of women without weapons risking their lives in order to bring Liberia peace. The episode was reconstructed through interviews, archival footage and striking images of contemporary Liberia.
Armed only with white T-shirts and the courage of their beliefs, a coalition of Christian and Muslim women challenged brutality and corruption, taking on Charles Taylor and the warlords. They action helped in bringing peace to Liberia after decades of war.
Their protests brought about the exile of Charles Taylor and the election of Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, Africa’s first female head of state. The occasion marked the vanguard of a new wave of people taking control of their political destiny around the world.
