|This remarkable, award-winning film chronicles the amazing but little-known story of a small band of unarmed women who risked their lives to bring peace to Liberia, a nation in West Africa founded as a home for emancipated American slaves. Thousands of women—ordinary mothers, grandmothers, aunts and daughters, both Christian and Muslim—came together to pray for peace and then staged a silent protest outside of the Presidential Palace. Armed only with white T-shirts and the courage of their convictions, they took on the warlords and nonviolently forced a resolution during the stalled peace talks. A story of sacrifice, unity and transcendence, director Gini Reticker’s documentary honors the strength and perseverance of the women of Liberia. Inspiring, uplifting and most of all motivating, it is a compelling testimony of how grassroots activism can alter the history of nations. In English. Official Web Site|
