Carole Stuart McIvor returned to Greenham on Christmas Eve, 1982 when she broke into the base and danced on the silos on New Year’s Day. She was represented in court by the incredible barrister Liz Woodcraft.
This photograph shows her hitting her head in the riot van and getting concussed.
Liz Woodcraft was the barrister who represented Carole. She went to Greenham with her mum and for Embrace the Base. After being impressed by the women dancing on the silos on New Year’s Eve, she represented them at their hearings at Newbury Magistrates Court, remembering the women singing all their answers in court and consequently being sent to the cells.
She talks about the impact Greenham Women had on the law and how some women went to Greenham to escape sexual abuse and violence, partly leading to her becoming involved in Women’s Aid.
She describes Greenham as a wonderful place to be with women being supportive and sisterly.
