The Women's Encampment for a Future of Peace and Justice is examined from an interpretivist prespective of organizational culture. The interview method is offered as one approach that can reveal the participants' experiences and viewpoints. The data which emerged from the interview material yields detailed descriptions of anti-nuclear and anti-patriarchal protest activity, as well as descriptions of the radical lesbian culture which took root at the camp. The analysis focuses on how the various cultural forms which included symbols, visual imagery, songs, and stories functioned as social controls in the camp.
