From the first arrivals, Women for Life on Earth, in 1981 to the thirty thousand women who formed a human chain to Aldermaston in 1983, the Greenham Common Peace Camp is a shining example of non-violent feminist action, changing both lives and laws. “The women of Greenham Common taught a generation how to protest,” noted Beeban Kidron. Bringing Greenham Home honours this history in films by Kidron, Sandra Lahire, Lis Rhodes and Sarah Wood.
