Strong Brave Women

I watched this documentary ``Pray the devil back to hell``about ordinary Liberian women who advocated and brought about peace in their country.

As a woman from Zimbabwe i can identify with these women. I know from experience that in most parts of Africa, a woman`s voice is never heard no matter how loud she shouts. I am impressed by these women who prayed, shouted, and demanded until Charles Taylor and the rebel groups heard and agreed to peace talks which later put an end to a long and disastrous civil war.

This film made me think about my home country Zimbabwe and all the political problems we have. We could follow the example of Liberian women and ``Pray our own devils to hell`` so our children have something to look forwad to. Food for thought.......

If you would like to see the film, it will be showing  during Mosaikveckan on Monday 20\2 at 18.30 until 20.00 its film night at  Sörlidens församlingsgård. ”Pray the devil back to hell” about Liberian women`s road to nobel peace prize will be showing . Organisers: FN-föreningen and Svenska kyrkan Örnsköldsvik.
