World in their Hands

by Martyn Thomas

The Story of the First Women’s Rugby World Cup

World in their Hands recounts the remarkable events that led to a group of friends from London staging the inaugural Women’s Rugby World Cup in 1991. This book is a celebration of female achievement in the face of adversity and of the generations who reshaped the idea of what it means to be a woman, finding acceptance and friendship on boggy rugby pitches.
