Wangari Maathai

Wangari Maathai

a Kenyan environmental and political activist.
I have always felt that perhaps women have sometimes almost embraced the same values as men, and the same character as men, because they are in the men's world, and they are trying to fit into a system that men have created. And maybe in truth when there is a critical mass of women who play that role in governments, then we will see whether women can really manage power in a way that is less destructive than the way that men have used power.More Wangari Maathai quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I'm sure that many people who are involved in an environmental effort ... they will be pretty much encouraged by this recognition.More Wangari Maathai quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Having studied biology really helped me a lot because I quickly understand how biological systems work, and how they fail, and the tragedy of when they fail, because we are dealing with life systems, and when we hear that a species has become extinct, or is threatened, you realize that this could mean that this species will disappear from the face of the earth forever! So that understanding really gives you energy to do something to save it.More Wangari Maathai quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
We need to promote development that does not destroy our environment.More Wangari Maathai quotes [02/25/2008 12:02:00]
