"This is an inspirational, uplifting and important book. It is welcoming to read a book which is rooted in the everyday lives, struggles and stories of `other women' in contrast to postmodernism or abstract theory which has dominated feminism in recent years. The book makes a significant contribution to feminism through its re-establishment, centrally, of the voices of `other women'. The authors also make a valuable development to the field of adult education, social inclusion and lifelong learning by illustrating the powerful role of learning through dialogue in promoting learning for social purpose, in transforming lives and active citizenship. We all have a lot to learn from the women in this book."
(Barbara Merrill, University of Warwick, UK)
"This book discusses the contributions that non-academic women, like myself, make to women's debate. Those of us who are learning to read and write are actually making changes in our lives and in the people around us. I celebrate a book like this one, which speaks of a feminism that includes our voices. I believe dialogue is a treasure today and feminism must defend that all voices can be heard."
(Emilia Claveria, Drom Kotar Mestipen Romani Women's Association, Barcelona, Spain)
