Have you heard of the Seneca Women’s Encampment for a Future of Peace and Justice? I hadn’t. It’s not mentioned in any history book I’ve ever read. But it should be.
Thousands and thousands of women camped here for a decade in protest of nuclear war and the arms race. But they didn’t just protest. They lived in community and learned to live in community. They made councils and recycle bins and workshops and safe spaces and songs around the campfire.
Sometimes I feel so deprived that there aren’t things like this today.
