On November 22, 1982, they re-emerged as part of a larger group under the name "Wimmin's Fire Brigade". - Wikipedia. The five were Ann Hansen, Brent Taylor, Juliet Caroline Belmas, Doug Stewart and Gerry Hannah. They were activists who had become disenchanted and frustratedwith traditional methods of activism, believing that by engaging in semi-s ymbolic propaganda by the deed, they could jolt people into action themselves.
