Pray The Devil Back To Hell

International Women’s Day is fast approaching.  It’s amazing how time flies when you count the months in terms of school breaks!

Early last year the library bought a wonderful film (and we’ve been buying more of them!) about the incredible true story of a group of women who fought, not with guns, but with their voices for peace in Liberia.  This film made such an impact on me when I watched it, that when I was thinking of what I was going to base my “Celebrate the Courage of Women” board, this film automatically jumped into my head.  Pray The Devil Back To Hell is a definite “must see” film on March 8 appropriate for grade 8 – 12. Just please note that there are scenes of violence as well as scenes showing child soldiers (a common practice within militia groups).
