‘Here We Stand : Women Changing the World’ with Helena Earnshaw, Angharad Penrhyn Jones and Helen St

Our guests present this unique anthology about contemporary women campaigners and how they were changed by the process of changing the world.


‘Here We Stand : Women Changing the World’ (Honno Press, 2014) is a fascinating and unique anthology about contemporary women campaigners and how they were changed by the process of changing the world.

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, logged 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.

To discuss the collection we welcome the books editors, Helena Earnshaw and Angharad Penrhyn Jones, alongside contributor and campaigner Helen Steel.
