In Honor of International Women's Day
We collaborate once a year with the World Affairs Council of New Hampshire and co- sponsor a film series that focuses on documentary films that tell the story of women's struggles for equality and safety. In March, we showed the film Pray the Devil Back to Hell, the remarkable story of thousands of Liberian women whose peaceful grassroots activism ended a bloody civil war and brought peace to their shattered country. This internationally acclaimed film is shown in honor of International Women's Day and is a free program. At the end of the film there was a brief discussion of the film and its impact.
