About Common Ground
Common Ground is a series of events bringing the legacy of Greenham Common Women's Peace Camp to local communities across the UK. It is part of a project created by Scary Little Girls in collaboration with Greenham Women Everywhere CIC to map the impact of the Peace Camp on the women who inhabited it and the communities they returned to. This project has been made possible thanks to support from the Heritage Lottery Fund.
About Greenham Common Women's Peace Camp
Greenham Common Women’s Peace Camp was an enduring and iconic protest spanning 19 years from 1981 - 2000. Whilst the occupation of the common began with the aim of forcing out the US nuclear warheads from Berkshire, the protest became a focal point of feminist history and has left a legacy of women’s liberation around the world. You can view our archive of oral histories, photographs and ephemera from Greenham here.
