Greenham Common Women's Peace Camp Part 3
This is the third and final part of our series on the Greenham Common Women’s Peace Camp. For this episode we’re focus ing on someone who wasn’t even there, yet was irrecoverably touch by it. A woman who 100% captures the spirit of the movement, taking the fight to a new generation.
Sophie was born in 1968 in Orphington, on the south-east edge of Greater London. She grew up with a mother, who she describes as flamboyant. However the area itself was pretty conservative; both with a small and big C. The staid local atmosphere did not crush Sophie’s rebellious spirit how, nor her sense of justice, which began at an early age.
