So says the header on our women’s history month facebook page https://www.facebook.com/pages/Womens-History-Month/122986467769056 I love this image, but it occurs to me a lot who see this won’t know the story behind it.
We are now in the run up to women’s history month 2014, and so I’m thinking a quick blog post about the story behind this image would be a good thing to post here. The photo is of a banner from Greenham Common Women’s Peace Camp, circa late eighties. At the peace camp, it was accepted that all are equals, no leaders, no underlings, autonomy lead the way, camp meetings held in circles and all voices heard, decisions made by consensus, true anarchy
The banner happened as a reaction to some unwise souls attempting to elect “leaders” at the peace camp, it didn’t work, of course…….. the majority choosing to autonomously keep our autonomy
