We will consider the monodromy action on mod 2 cohomology for SL(2) Hitchin systems. We will study Copeland's approach to the subject and use his results to compute the monodromy action on mod 2 cohomology. An interpretation of our results in terms of geometric properties of fixed points of a natural involution on the moduli space is given.
