Women For Peace: Banners From Greenham Common

by Charlotte Dew - £14.00  Four Corners Books (2021)
hardback    ISBN 13: 9781909829183 | ISBN 10: 1909829188

Published to coincide with the 40th anniversary of the Greenham Common peace protests, this book is packed full of the vibrant fabric banners made for Greenham, many presented here for the first time in decades.
 
In the late summer of 1981, a group of women walked from Cardiff for over a hundred miles carrying a hand-made banner proclaiming their protest against nuclear missiles. This march to the military base at Greenham Common led to the establishment of camps that, for nearly two decades, drew women from all over the world to make their voices heard in the name of peace.
 
Drawing on a wealth of archival material from across England and Wales, Women for Peace is a richly illustrated book about the brilliant banners made for the Greenham Common protests. It is a celebration of the collective power of women, women’s art and the history of peace campaigning.
