A fascinating and unique anthology about contemporary women campaigners and how they were changed by the process of changing the world.

WINNER OF THE BREAD AND ROSES AWARD FOR RADICAL PUBLISHING 2015
A Book Of The Year 2015 as selected by Natalie Bennett in The Ecologist

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 demand change.
