Pray the Devil Back to Hell is the gripping account of a group of brave and visionary women who demanded peace for Liberia, a nation torn by a decades-old civil war. It is the story of the brave women of Liberia – Christian and Muslim – who united to form an unshakable line between the opposing forces, and successfully demanded an end to the fighting– armed only with white T-shirts and the courage of their convictions. Pray the Devil Back to Hell is a compelling testimony to the potential of women worldwide to alter the history of nations.
