Believing women’s voices needed to be heard in a male dominated world of politics and anti-nuclear movements, Ann and Karmen helped initiate the 1981 ‘Women for Life on Earth’ walk from Cardiff to Greenham Common USAF base.

Their aim was to begin a public debate with the government regarding nuclear weapons, in particular Cruise missiles, and to engage the media.

Visiting Russia in 1983, they met with the Moscow Group for Trust, a peace group independent of the Soviet state, as well as with the official Soviet Peace Committee.

They were interviewed by Nicky Arikoglu in 2019.
