The Long Road to Greenham Summary

The Long Road to Greenham: Feminism and Anti-militarism in Britain Since 1820 by Jill Liddington

Triggered by the Greenham Common campaign, this book traces the story of women's peace campaigns in Britain back to the Female Auxiliary Peace Societies of the 1820s. It assesses the influence of turn-of-the-century writers and reconsiders the role of the Women's International League formed in 1915; of the Women's Co-operative Guild's "white poppy" pacifism in the 1930s; and the role of women in the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament. Jill Liddington has also written "One Hand Tied Behind Us", with Jill Norris and "The Life and Times of a Respectable Rebel".
