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).
