“Tomorrow our children will ask us, ‘Mama, what was your role during the crisis?’” Leymah Gbowee said that this thought motivated her to organize and lead what became a mass action women’s movement that ended Liberia’s brutal civil war in 2003. Under Gbowee’s inspired leadership, Christian and Muslim women joined together to face President Charles Taylor in demanding an end to the rape and slaughter of their children.  “The women of Liberia…I’m proud of them. We stood,” said Vaiba Flomo, with palpable emotion. Flomo was a member of Gbowee’s group. Gbowee and Flomo made these statements in the powerful new, multi-award winning, documentary film, Pray the Devil Back to Hell.

For her role in leading this nonviolent peace movement, Gbowee won a Nobel Peace Prize earlier this month.
