Barbara Hughes spent most of her time at Orange gate, which she describes as the international gate where you could meet ‘women from all over the place’ which she liked. It wasn’t possible for her to live there as she had three young children, so she went down as often as possible for actions. She was first introduced to Greenham at a CND rally, when a group of women got up on the platform to speak about their plans for that original march from Cardiff to Greenham in 1981. We spoke about her own creative actions back in Richmond with the “Duck and Cover” company, the importance of carrying Greenham home, and her hopes for the future of feminism.
Barbara was interviewed by Alice Robinson in January 2021.
