2021 marks 40 years since Greenham Common Women’s Peace Camp was established. Greenham Common Women’s Peace Camp was a series of protest camps established to protest nuclear weapons being placed at RAF Greenham Common in Berkshire, England, from 1981 to 2000. These protest camps were led by women.

This exhibition in the windows of Margate Old Town celebrates the Greenham Common Women’s Peace Camp and more women in protest from 1979 to the present day.

Wendy Carrig photographed the women peace protestors at Greenham Common while studying for her photography degree. She slept in makeshift tents in sub-zero temperatures, experienced daily evictions, and witnessed first hand the enormity of a cruise missile convoy. Her series of black and white photographs show how domestic life continued around the campfire.
