About Greenham Women Everywhere:
Greenham Women Everywhere is a Community Interest Company created by and with women who formed and lived at the Greenham women’s Peace Camp between 1981 and 2000, with the aim of documenting and raising awareness of the actions and impact of the peace camp as well as meaningfully engaging materials from the archive to build skills, community and champion contemporary activists.
The project was created by feminist production hub Scary Little Girls & The Heroine collective in 2018 when they started interviewing women who lived at the peace camp. With over 200 interviews, hundreds of photographs and other ephemera from the camp now in the archive, the organisations has gone on to create digital projects, develop educational initiatives for schools, young people and adults and to gather support from the Heritage Fund, Arts Council and National Lottery Community Fund to work with communities.
