International women’s day
On international womens day we honor all women who fight to protect our living environment. We honor Rachel Carson for opening the worlds eyes to the dangers of toxic pesticides with her book Silent Spring. We honor Berta Caceres who gave her life to prevent environmental destruction of her country, Honduras. We pay tribute to Theo Colborn for her groundbreaking book Our Stolen Future, which urged the world to take action against endocrine disrupting chemicals. We pay tribute to Wangari Maathai for dedicating her life to environmental protection and women’s rights in Kenya.
Today millions of women are fighting for a healthy living environment through law making, awareness raising and research. Thank you for your inspiration and keep up the good work for our planet and our children.
