WINNER OF THE 2015 BREAD AND ROSES AWARD
SELECTED BY NATALIE BENNETT AS HER BEST BOOK OF 2015 IN RESURGENCE MAGAZINE
'A perfect book for the times we live in.' - Natalie Bennett, leader of the Green Party and Bread and Roses Award judge
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.
