Based on new oral testimony this paper seeks to find and give voice to the “few women” that were involved in the GI Movement, the Armed Forces’ dissent against the Vietnam War, along the West Coast, but especially in the Seattle-Tacoma Area. Predominantly because of its nature, a male movement, a few women nonetheless played an active role as either civilians or “dependents” in GI protests, underground newspapers, as counsellors, in the “F[uck] T[he] A[rmy] Show” and GI Coffeehouses.
