I can't say enough good things about Wangari Maathai and what she has done for Kenya, the earth and women in particular through her Greenbelt Movement. She is a huge influence on me and on my work.

I have watched - "Taking Root: The Vision of Wangari Maathai." It is really good and I highly recommend it!
