For much of the 1980s, "women's peace camps" were established in protest at the deployment of cruise missiles. They came to be known as "The Greenham Women" or "peace women", and their 19-year protest drew worldwide media and public attention, often due to the peace women cutting through the fences of the base. A lone protestor makes a stand by breaking through the police cordon and peacefully prostrated herself in the middle of the road. She was very quickly removed. 1983
