Provocative and illuminating essays from women at the forefront of the climate movement who are harnessing truth, courage, and solutions to lead humanity forward.   There is a renaissance blooming in the climate movement: leadership that is more characteristically feminine and more faithfully feminist, rooted in compassion, connection, creativity, and collaboration. While it’s clear that women and girls are vital voices and agents of change for this planet, they are too often missing from the proverbial table. More than a problem of bias, it’s a dynamic that sets us up for failure. To change everything, we need everyone.   All We Can Save illuminates the expertise and insights of dozens of diverse women leading on climate in the United States—scientists, journalists, farmers, lawyers, teachers, activists, innovators, wonks, and designers, across generations, geographies, and race—and aims to advance a more representative, nuanced, and solution-oriented public conversation on the climate crisis. These women offer a spectrum of ideas and insights for how we can rapidly, radically reshape society.   Intermixing essays with poetry and art, this book is both a balm and a guide for knowing and holding what has been done to the world, while bolstering our resolve never to give up on one another or our collective future. We must summon truth, courage, and solutions to turn away from the brink and toward life-giving possibility. Curated by two climate leaders, the book is a collection and celebration of visionaries who are leading us on a path toward all we can save.

“Their introduction sets up key terminology and asks readers to contemplate ways in which environmentalism has been impacted by toxic masculinity while setting the stage for an examination that is intersectional in its attention to issues of race, class, and gender.” Library Journal
“A welcome anthology…A well-curated collection with many ideas for ways large and small to save the planet.” Kirkus Reviews
“Twelve narrators present the fifteen sections of this timely collection…Listeners will hear the familiar performers Jane Fonda and Bahni Turpin narrating information on the ways increased temperatures and other environmental changes are damaging our world. Additional narrators read the words of female environmentalists, climate scientists, and advocates…The warnings are interspersed with hope.” AudioFile
“This collection is a comfort because of its honesty and courage.” BuzzFeed
“A powerful read that fills one with, dare I say…hope?” New York Times
