Leah left a job as a social worker to stay at Greenham in 1983, by which time she was in her mid-fifties, and Diana joined the camp in 1984. They learned how to build benders, were arrested and imprisoned numerous times around the country and Diana remembers being asked by one prisoner if she was from Greenham because “You’ve got that liberated look”. They describe Greenham as a “university of the open air” where the women-only, non-violent environment made space for creativity in resistance.

Leah and Diana were interviewed by Sarah Learmonth in 2019.
