Wangari Maathai Day – March 3, 2016 [Women’s History Month]

“When I first started, it was really an innocent response to the needs of women in rural areas. When we started planting trees to meet their needs, there was nothing beyond that. I did not see all the issues that I have to come to deal with.” – From an interview with Wangari Maathai, Mother Jones magazine, January 5, 2005
