Blue Gate


Atrás Elizabeth Abraham (Woad / Blue Gates)

Places like Greenham Common are important in this perspective because these are places where the hidden alternative culture of women has been made visible to all the world: not just as a tribal phenomenon among the tribes, but as a head on challenge to the most complete and absolute of all male structures: the war machine.

'There have always been wars and there always will be'. This statement is not just incidental to the patriarchal mode. It is a structural truth.
