Written by: Christian Albers


Some of you might remember Leymah Gbowee from Liberia, Director of the Women Peace and Security Network Africa, talking about the protest for peace in Liberia at CSW 52.Christian and Muslim women were tired of seeing their husbands and sons killed in a devastating civil war and therefore went out on the streets for sit-ins and other kinds of peaceful protest.The film “Pray the davil back to hell” featuring Leymah Gbowee and her protest movement was recently awarded “Best New Narrative Filmmaker Award” at the Tribeca film festival. So far the documentary is not yet available on DVD, but the trailer can be seen on the website.
