On 8 March 2012, the world will pause to celebrate women from all over the world. International Women’s Day is a time to pay tribute to the incredible women who have shaped our world – and also to help women who are suffering in war zones every day.
This International Women’s Day, we invite you to get your friends together and show your support for women worldwide by hosting a screening of the remarkable film ‘Pray the Devil Back to Hell’. A true story of sacrifice, unity and transcendence, Pray the Devil Back to Hell honors the strength and perseverance of the women of Liberia, who took it upon themselves to end the violence that had torn their country apart. Inspiring and uplifting, it is a compelling account of how grassroots activism can alter the history of nations.
