Other Girls Like Me is funny and sad, powerful and inspirational, especially in these times that are calling for all of us to become activists. And Stephanie Davies can write. Her prose is lyrical, even at times mesmerizing.” — Beverly Donofrio, Riding in Cars with Boys

“I read the first 200 pages of Other Girls Like Me in one sitting, I couldn’t put it down. It’s my story and yet it’s not. It speaks to all of us radicals, feminists, and lesbians who grew up in the 70s and 80s. Stephanie’s warmth and compassion shine through these pages. What a life!" — Neri Tannenbaum, Producer, Orange is the New Black

"The history of Greenham Common, and the vibrant lesbian and feminist movement culture that it fostered, has been far too little chronicled. Stephanie Davies' book, Other Girls Like Me, beautifully captures the defiant, vital, punk-rock energy of that women-centered activist world and its lasting impact on both participants and the larger left.” — L.A. Kauffman, How to Read a Protest: The Art of Organizing and Resistance
