9781909983021: Here We Stand: Women Changing the World (Honno Voices)

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 have organized, 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 fired from their jobs, attacked, psychologically abused, jailed, shot at, sued, deceived by police spies, and even disowned by their families. And they are changing history. These original testimonies are uplifting, shocking and moving.

About the Author:

Helena Earnshaw has collaborated with her sister on an observational documentary series which exposed the issue of rural homelessness and heroin addiction. Described by Ken Loach as “an important social document” and referred to in Parliament, it went on to win many awards. She has been named BAFTA Wales Best Newcomer of the Year. She was also the subject of a Welsh documentary about the antiglobalization movement. She has written for a number of publications, including the Guardian, Mslexia, New Internationalist and New Welsh Review. In 2011 she won a Literature Wales bursary to work on her debut novel and she has been shortlisted for the Observer Young Travel Writer of the Year award.

Review:

"[E]xtraordinary testimonies . . . [a] hugely motivating and important book." —Ian Sinclair, People's Daily Morning Star

"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

"Seventeen angry and affirmative testimonies, 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." —Metro

"Reading about these activists' determination, bravery and commitment is inspiring and humbling in equal measure. I recommend this book to anyone who dreams of a better world, and is prepared to learn from some of those who have already fought for one." —Mark Lynas, author, High Tide, Six Degrees and The God Species

"Anthologies can often be uneven affairs, but this collection was consistently moving, insightful and inspiring in equal measure. The editors deserve particular praise for having so brilliantly presented these essential accounts of women involved in so many areas of struggle." —Nina Power

"Highly recommended . . . a compelling and affecting anthology... this book should be read by everyone, especially non-activist males! " —Lotte Reimer and Kelvin Mason, Planet

"From the first page to the last, these incredible stories of women's political courage leap off the page. The blend of personal accounts mixed with outstanding journalism make for a truly inspiring collection." —Anna Minton

"I really loved it, and found it incredibly inspiring . . . it gets me emotional just thinking about a lot of these stories. So many times [these women] put their lives on the line." —Mary Jacob, New Welsh Review podcast

"The moment you see activists is usually when they're outside the High Court and they're being interviewed by the BBC for two minutes... In this book you see all the different processes and the lead-up to that moment, and they break down some of the cliches... It's fascinating on so many different levels . . . It made me realize that change is possible." —Katherine Stansfield, poet and novelist
