Please join us in Celebration of 2014 International Women’s Day and Women’s History Month.
Film screening “Pray the Devil Back to Hell”
Tuesday March 4, 12:15-1:15 pm, BCC auditorium.
The astonishing story of the Liberian women who took on the warlords and regime of Dictator Charles Taylor in the midst of a brutal civil war, and won an unimaginable peace for their shattered country in 2003. As the rebel noose tightened around the capital city of Monrovia, thousands of women – ordinary mothers, grandmothers, aunts and daughters, both Christian and Muslim – armed with only Nonviolence, formed a thin but unshakeable line between the opposing forces. Inspiring and uplifting, “Pray the Devil Back to Hell” is a compelling example of how grassroots activism can alter history.
Film screening “Living Along the Fenceline”
Wednesday March 5, 12:15-1:15 pm, BCC auditorium
“Living Along the Fenceline”, a ground breaking documentary by award-winning filmmaker Lina Hoshino, tells the stories of seven women whose lives have been affected by the US military presence in their backyards. From South Korea to Puerto Rico, they challenge the assumption that military bases make them safe, and advance alternative ideas of peace and security.
