The story of the Liberian women who took on the warlords and regime of dictator Charles Taylor in the midst of a brutal civil war, and won a once unimaginable peace for their shattered country in 2003. As the rebel noose tightened around the capital city of Monrovia, thousands of women – both Christian and Muslim – formed an unshakeable line between the opposing forces. Armed only with white T-shirts and the courage of their convictions, they faced down the killers who had turned Liberia into hell on earth. Their demonstrations culminated in Taylor’s exile and the rise of Africa’s first female head of state, Ellen Johnson Sirleaf. Pray the Devil Back to Hell is a compelling example of how grassroots activism can alter the history of nations.
