Background; Audrey Layton is an 87-year-old great-grandmother and ex-Primary School headmistress who spent time in prison during the 1980’s after protesting against nuclear missiles at Greenham Common Airbase.
Suggestions for discussion; Audrey says it’s not enough to just remember the past, you have to think about the future. What do you think she means ? The podcast asks you what you think a peacemaker looks like – well, what’s your answer ? Can you think of other examples of women working for peace ? ( if not – why not ?!?). What do you know about Greenham Common and the protests there – and how could you find out more ? Audrey says she was “ roused” to join the protest there – what role do you think anger and “being difficult” can play in the work of peace ?
