Nobel Peace Laureate Wangari Maathai on the Environment, the War in Iraq, Debt and Women’s Equality
On March 8, International Women’s Day, we spend the hour with Wangari Maathai, the first African woman and first environmentalist to receive the Nobel Peace Prize discussing the environment, the war in Iraq, debt and women’s equality.
She has waged a life-long campaign against the government-backed forest clearances in Kenya. In 1977, she founded the Green Belt Movement when she planted nine tree seeds in the yard of her house. In the following years, she succeeded in persuading women across Africa to do the same. Today, about 30 million trees have been planted across the continent to fight deforestation.
