Big cities don't have to mean a dystopian future. They can be turned around to be powerhouses of well-being and environmental sustainability - if we empower women. This book is a unique collaboration between C40 and Friends of the Earth showcasing pioneering city mayors, key voices in the environmental and feminist movements, and academics. The essays collectively demonstrate both the need for women's empowerment for climate action and the powerful change it can bring. A rallying call - for the planet, for women, for everyone.

Hope is a potent catalyst. And while our failure to adequately appreciate and guard against ecological destruction fills me with frustration, my hope is not meek or weak. It is urgent and raging. It's a hope that believes a better world - away from cyclical war, the annihilation of the earth's treasures and the grinding down of the poor - is possible. * Caroline Lucas MP *
If women are given equal opportunities to contribute to the global condition we will be able to create a safer, more just and more prosperous world. Universal wellbeing created by universal participation. * Christiana Figueres, Architect of the Paris Climate Agreement *
A wake-up call for the environmental movement * Praise for the First Edition, Craig Bennett, CEO of Friends of the Earth *
An inspiring call to action * Liz Hutchins, Campaigns Director, Friends of the Earth *
Climate action offers the opportunity to transform social and economic development for the better. We must take this opportunity to elevate women and girls as equals in a stable and sustainable society marked by lasting peace and prosperity. That is how women will save the planet. * Patricia Espinosa, Executive Secretary, United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change *
You can't save the planet without equality ... We need a new economics informed by the larger picture, an economy that puts women and the Earth at the centre. * Vandana Shiva *
