"We men have had our turn and made a proper mess of things. We need women to save us." Archbishop Desmond Tutu Within the pages of this lovingly, idealistically and passionately written book lies a collection of essays: pleas for world peace and an end to animal cruelty, calls for us to tread more lightly on what is, after all, our only home and a finite resource, and descriptions of environmental activism and acts of heroism the world over. With contributions from Anita Roddick, Jilly Cooper, Rosie Boycott and Margaret Drabble, A Woman's Guide to Saving the World is published on International Women's Day.
