The new documentary, Pray the Devil Back to Hell, tells the extraordinary story of a group of Liberian women who banded together to end their nation's second bloody civil war.

NPR's Tony Cox talks with one of the women, Leymah Gbowee, about how she mobilized a coalition of Christian and Muslim women to stand up to Liberia's violent warlords.
