This is the story of a group of women of various ages, backgrounds, nationalities, and sexual orientations who met at the US Airforce base at Greenham Common. Based on in-depth interviews and her own personal experience, Sasha Roseneil reveals how their challenges to traditional values, politics, and lifestyles signaled a bold step forward for queer feminist politics. The voices of the women are strong, lively, engaging, and often very funny. The remembrances of their exciting, life-changing times at Greenham captures a moment in history when ordinary women did some extraordinary things.
