Wangari Maathai “Unbowed”
October 20th, 2006
Wangari Maathai is a mother of three, a government environmental minister in Kenya, and to many, a hero. In 1977 she launched the Green Belt Movement, to restore Kenya’s forests and provide work for thousands of women.
Her work came with a price. She was jailed several times, had her life threatened, and faced constant harassment. But in 2004 Maathai was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, and now she has a new memoir called “Unbowed.”
