The women’s peace camp at Greenham Common was set up to stop the deployment of nuclear cruise missiles at the air base. The peace camp not only inspired other peace camps around the world, but it was also a cauldron of radical ideals. Many of these ideas were inspired by feminism. Activists at Greenham often didn’t use surnames, for example, as they believed these to be patriarchal in origin. Instead, women were identified by their first names and where they came from.
