Through a series of interviews and articles, 17 key British women
campaigners talk intimately about the difficult and exhilarating nature of their work.

These women are dreaming of a better world. But they are not just
dreamers. They have organised, marched on the streets, joined protest camps, opened refuges, blogged from war zones, and smashed up military equipment. They have gone undercover, lived in trees, stormed Parliament, and taken on the world's largest corporations. They have been sacked, attacked, psychologically abused, jailed, shot at, sued, deceived by police spies, and even disowned by their families. But still they keep dreaming; still they march on. And they are changing history.

These original testimonies are uplifting, shocking and moving.
They will rouse you, and encourage you to ask for more.

Contributors include: Franny Armstrong, Zoe Broughton, Skye Chirape, Eileen Chubb, Liz Crow, Kate Evans, Zita Holbourne, Shauneen Lambe, Sharyn Lock, Emma Must, Jasvinder Sanghera, Mary Sharkey, Helen Steel, Angharad Tomos, Anuradha Vittachi, Jo Wilding, Angie Zelter.

WHSmith Wales Book of the Month, July 2014

'In this important book... Helena Earnshaw and Angharad Penrhyn Jones interview 17 of their peers about what compels them to devote their lives to helping others... Wisely, the editors don't try to draw any overarching themes or arguments from these women's work, instead letting them speak for themselves. Their courage and commitment shines through.'
David Evans, The Independent

'prepare to be in awe of these tireless campaigners.'
Red magazine

'Every now and then, I am sent a book to review that is an absolute pleasure to read from cover to cover... These women have literally changed the world that we inhabit, and that gives this reader heart that I can too.'
Virginia Moffatt, Peace News

'Seventeen angry and affirmative testimones, ranging from women who have taken on corporations and opened refuges, to those who have marched on the streets and stormed parliament, all in the name of a better future.'


' So many incredible women are standing up for what they believe – this book is a celebration of their remarkable and all too often unacknowledged achievements. It's a source of inspiration and a call to action'

'This book will change the way you see the world'
JOSIE LONG, comedian and co-founder of Arts Emergency
