Hilary went to Greenham for a summer with her friend and remembers it being a time when she felt able to say, “This is for women only.” She talks about the unease of the police when faced with crowds of women pushing back against the establishment, women that were heroes to her, and the education she got from being with other women. Hilary explains how important art was as a form of expression and the lasting impact Greenham had on her life, how she viewed her role in the world and that she’d do it all over again, but with a better tent.

Hilary was interviewed by Florence Weston in 2019.
