“It’s time we listened to the Maude Barlows of the world.” – CNN

In her new book, Still Hopeful: Lessons from a Lifetime of Activism, Maude Barlow goes against the prevailing atmosphere of pessimism that surrounds us and offers instead lessons of hope, gained from her lifetime of activism. She draws these lessons from each of the three major movements she has been a part of: second-wave feminism, the battle against free trade and globalization, and the global fight for water justice. Maude knows from her firsthand experience how hard fighting for change can be, but she also knows that change does happen, and hope is the essential ingredient.

Maude Barlow is the bestselling author of 20 books. She sits on the board of Food & Water Watch, the Global Alliance for the Rights of Nature, and is a councillor with the World Future Council. She served as senior water advisor to the UN General Assembly and was a leader in the campaign to have water recognized as a human right. She is the recipient of fifteen honorary doctorates, the Right Livelihood Award, and is the current chancellor of Brescia University. She lives in Ottawa, Ontario.
